Allan Jones PictureWe are honored to have WWII Veteran Allen Q. Jones as our keynote speaker this year. Allen joined the U.S. Army in June 1943, and part of the 717th Tank Battalion, which was attached to the 28th Division in Europe. After returning home in 1945, he has since been involved with the Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States organization, including serving as the Department of Pennsylvania State Commander from 1986-1987.

Jones grew up in Dunbar Township and Uniontown, Pennsylvania, and now resides in Huntersville with his daughter Marcia.
