Jonesey

He was my neighbor and surfing buddy. We in Waianae, were extremely proud of him for representing our country by fighting in Viet Nam. The war was so distant to us at the time. The reality of the war really hit us when he was killed. It brought the war right to our door steps. He was the first of our circle of friends to be KIA. I remember his mom crying out loudly when she learned of his death. It was indeed a very sad time.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear PFC Jones Eugene Tomlinson, sir

As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.

May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.

With respect, Sir

Curt Carter

You were my diving buddy in Waianae

Jones was a tall, lanky hawaiian-haole
who grew up on the West side of O'ahu in Wai'anae. He graduated from Wai'anae High School, class of 1964. He was a great diver, loved the ocean. We used to call him 'turtle man' because he caught a 300 lb. turtle right outside of Makua. Back then, it was ok to catch turtle. He loved the ocean and will always be remembered on 'da West side'.
Aloha oe, my brother
