The collection consists primarily of photocopies of articles from various newspapers recounting the part played by the U.S. Army’s George M. Jones (1911-1996) and his troops in the retaking of Corregidor, The Philippines, in 1945, and on Jones after his retirement. The collection includes a map of the Pacific Ocean used during Operation Crossroads, the atomic bomb tests in 1946, which has numerous signatures by participants, and a certificate of appreciation of Jones’ service in South Korea from the Republic of Korea army.
