He was a great friend and mentor. He made tremendous contributions to our Nation as CJCS . He will be sorely missed but God is now his co-pilot!

In February, 1970, General Jones selected me to be his "Sergeant Major" at 2AF, Barksdale AFB. He invited me and my family to accompany him and his family to Germany in 1971 and arranged for me to open the USAFE Command Management Center. In 1974, when he was selected as CSAF, he assigned me at Randolph with instructions to travel the Air Force and share my leadership message. In July, 1977, he honored me with selection as CMSAF #5. I worked directly for the General for 9 years. He wrote the foreward to the book that I hope some day to publish. To quote Abe Lincoln, "Everything I am or ever hope to be I owe to my mother." Mine would read, "I owe to General Dave Jones." He was absolutely the greatest visionary I have ever met; we enjoyed total rapport. I have lost a mentor and friend. All of us in the Gaylor family send our deepest condolence to each of you in the David C. Jones family.

I was stationed at Lindsey AS, Germany when Gen Jones was a Colonel and DO. When he was appointed Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, I was working in the Chairman's Staff Group and saw General Jones almost daily. Fond memories of the Christmas receptions at his home at Ft Myer. Rest in peace sir. CMSgt Sheri Masek, USAF, Retired

I had the privilege of meeting - and briefing - Gen Jones on numerous occasions when I was a junior officer during the Vietnam War. Later, while serving in the Pentagon, our paths crossed again on several occasions. He was always, without fail, a true gentleman and an inspiring airman and leader. It was an honor having known him
