In Memoriam
Tom Jones, Lt. Col., retired
Founder of the 14th Infantry Regiment Association, and past president of the 25th Infantry Division Association, passed away on Thursday, December 21, 2017 following his battle with cancer.

Tom Jones served with the 2/14th at Schofield Barracks, and then deployed with the 1/14th to Vietnam, rising to the rank of Captain.  In the years following his service he worked tirelessly on behalf of the 14th Infantry Regiment, becoming the driving force behind the creation of the 14th Infantry Regiment Association.  He was a very active supporter of the 25th Infantry Division Association, becoming its president in 2012.  In 2015 he received the 25th Association's highest honor, the Frederick C. Weyand award.  Read the complete story as reported in the Fall 2015 issue of Tropic Lightning Flashes...  As journalist Karen Zacharias said, "Tom Jones was all about serving others."  You can read her tribute to Tom in "A Hero's Journey".  You can find Tom's obituary on the Donovan Funeral Home web site.  We will miss Tom, he was a leader, and a friend to all...
