Early life Edit
Jones enlisted in the US Army some time prior to 1944, and likely trained with the 29th Infantry Division at Fort Meade, Maryland. After crossing the Atlantic and arriving in Great Britain, Jones would have trained for the invasion of Normandy at a number of locations across England and Scotland.
Operation Overlord Edit
Early in the day on 6 June 1944, Jones was among the first to disembark onto the French beach under heavy machine-gun fire. Armed only with a Bangalore torpedo, Jones is able to make his way to the sea wall before becoming pinned down by enemy fire. He is rescued by Lieutenant James Patterson, an American agent with the Office of Strategic Services, who escorts him along the sea wall back to his commanding officer. Jones then plants the explosives, creating an opening for the men to charge through. However, when Jones rushes forward he has the misfortune of stepping on a mine, killing him instantly.
