SALUTING OUR MILITARY: Sergeant First Class Joseph Jones

army

Sergeant First Class Joseph Jones is an Airborne Ranger serving as a Tandem Instructor and Free Fall videographer for the Tandem Team.

Jones enlisted into the Army in January 1994 as an infantryman. He attended Basic Training, Airborne School and the Army Ranger Course at Ft Benning, Georgia. After completing all his entry level training he accepted assignments at Ft. Lewis, WA, Fort Benning, GA. and Fort Campbell, KY. Jones also completed a combat tour in Haiti in 1994 with the 2nd Ranger BN in support of Operation Uphold Democracy.

In another step toward distinction, on top of his already outstanding record, Jones chose to attend the rigorous Golden Knight Assessment and Selection Program. After a challenging six-week process, he was ‘knighted’ and accepted as a demonstration parachutist on the Black Demonstration Team for two years.

Jones has completed more than 5,000 freefall parachute jumps, 1,200 tandem jumps and 50 military static line jumps. In his spare time Jones enjoys hunting, golf and fishing.
