Just seen a post that Ronald Jones has passed away today. I had got to sit down with him a couple of times over the years. Now with him and the passing of Sammy not long ago. My drop side panel got a little bit more special tonight. RIP Ron.

Jonesz will certainly be missed by all. I have him in my notes as being in Nam 69/70 and in the 352nd and 233rd TC, Long Binh as a 5 ton and jeep driver. Does anyone know if that is correct?
