NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) - A prosecutor in the Nacogdoches County's District Attorney's Office is a man willing to step up to the plate.
Andrew Jones volunteered and was selected for service at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.
On Wednesday, Jones shared stories of the experience with the "Nacogdoches Rotary Club."
Jones first volunteered for the 3rd Infantry Regiment, more commonly known as the Old Guard.
Then he went on to serve the Tomb.
He said both taught him discipline.
"When we're down there, we're down there for one reason and it's not for self-glorification," Jones said. "It's not to be out in front of an audience. It's to pay respect to those men and women who gave their lives to their country and we don't even know who they are."
Prior to his service at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, Jones enlisted in the -S Army after the invasion of Iraq in 2004.
