  • Don L. Penfold says:

    General Jones is at best the most intelligent choice for this highly responsible position in the U.S. government. His credentials speak for themselves. This Marine predicts his nomination will breeze through Congress

  • Waldo Berger says:

    I served under a General Jones who was Assistant Commander of the 1st Marine Division in Pekin China in 1945-46

  • Don L. Penfold says:

    Waldo Berger could not have served under this Gen. Jones in question as his Marine legacy had yet to commence.
