Brig. Gen. David Jones, Commander, B.D.F.

“I have received correspondence already that there is intent for me to be inducted into the Hall of Fame at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas.  This honor is bestowed on officers who have been outstanding in their career and officers who have attended the commanders and generals staff college at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas and have risen all the way to the rank of commander of their armed forces.  So, being that I was a graduate of that college and my performance while I was there and being that I have risen to the rank of commander of the Belize Defense Force, I have been invited to go and be inducted in the hall of fame which means that I will also address the graduating class of Fort Leavenworth when I go there.”
