If you need someone to honor today honor this man, Robert N. Jones.
He was the grandfather of a Shipmate and friend of mine, Master Chief Robert Jones. Several years ago I was with Rob when his grandfather was buried. We stood side by side in our Dress Blue uniforms and honored him as a Shipmate, fellow Chief and a grandfather. Look here at his Navy ID card. He was DISCHARGED on DEC 7th, 1941, can you believe that. He rejoined the US Navy in 1942 and completed his tours of duty in the Pacific Theater and was promoted to Chief Petty Officer.
He served in the United States Navy and he served well.
