SAN DIEGO — Lt. Spencer Jones, a native of Connersville, Indiana, serves in the U.S. Navy in San Diego, California.

“I joined the Navy because I wanted to explore the world,” said Jones. “The idea of being in a new place every day seemed really cool. But as I learned more about serving, it became about wanting to be a part of something bigger than myself. I wanted to contribute to something positive.”
