 Additional Information
Last Known Activity

Very little information could be located about the civilian life of CAPT Glyn Jones. One website gave a short description of his time in the service - "A good deal of the chaplain's career was spent with the U.S. Marines. From time to time he was involved in such controversial issues as compulsory chapel attendance, civil liberties, the rule of law in society, the draft, freedom of the press, and the position of the chaplain in the hierarchy of command." Most likely more details can be learned by reading the book Reminiscences of Captain Glyn Jones, CHC, USN (Ret.).
