Robert was augmenting his income by being a member of a local National Guard unit. He was activated/federalized in November 1940. His reported occupation there was that he was a carpenter. We have been unable to trace Robert's military career but we know that he was likely assigned to G Company 116th Infantry prior to the amphibious assault on D-Day, 6 Jun 1944 and that he participated in that mission. PVT Jones was killed in action on 30 Jun 1944.
PVT Jones is buried in the Normandy American Cemetery.
