Sergeant Jones final campaign was at Blanc Mont Ridge where more than one-thousand marines were lost in October of 1918.
A. The Start of A New Journey (2014 - 2015)
Patriots and Ladies, this is a message of thanks for your confidence and your affirmative vote for my leadership as Commander for the year 2014 - 2015. I will endeavor to work hard to keep our ship-of-state (Chapter 0049) as strong and as healthy as it was left to me by Past Chapter Commanders.

A. FAREWELL TO CREW - (2012 - 2014)
Patriots and Ladies, this is a note of celebration and gratitude. As the ship pulls into the dock and prepare to drop anchor, we are joyful that this phase of the mission is completed. We know that once the cargo is unloaded and a few days of rest is afforded the crew, we must prepare to take on new cargo and a new mission. However, I think it entirely appropriate for me to take time out to address the crew. To say “THANKS” for a two-year mission that has been exhilarating and fruitful in so many ways.
Out-going Commander, Ulysses Miller, Jr. Chapter 0049 ("The Sunny Jones Chapter") San Diego, CA
