World War II veteran visits for grandson's promotion

Tech. Sgt. Joe Jones and his grandfather retired Army Capt. Joe Jones, shake hands at Sheppard Air Force Base, Texas, Feb. 28, 2020. Jones invited his grandfather to see him promote in person for the first time. In a monologue, Jones stated he did not think he would make it this far in his career, considering his decisions before joining the Air Force. His grandfather jokingly said he also did not think Jones would make it, but then said he is proud of his grandson for being in the Air Force.(Courtesy photo)
