Whereas, Lance Corporal Jones enlisted in the Marine Corps in August 1966 and began serving in the Vietnam War in September 1967 with the Third Platoon Company K of the 26th Marine Corps; and
Whereas, he gave the ultimate sacrifice in defense of his country on January 21, 1967, when he was killed during combat in the vicinity of Quang-Tri Province, Vietnam; and
