"Jones' mission is multifaceted this time around. His primary goal is to continue to improve his own health and wellbeing, as well as that of his fellow Marines, soldiers and airmen. "I hope to raise awareness concerning the struggle of America’s veteran population," Jones said. And as he ticks off the miles on a course that will eventually end at the Mall in Washington, D.C., Jones says he hopes to prove to the able-bodied world that a wounded veteran still has an immense amount of value in the 21st century."
