Korean War vets Leroy Jones and Patrick Farrell visited the nation’s capital June 2-4. Jones served in the U.S. Marine Corps from 1951, when he enlisted as an infantry officer, to 1980, when he retired as a lieutenant colonel. Farrell served in the U.S. Navy during the war from 1951 to 1954. Both Jones and Farrell are members of the Rotary Club of Los Altos.
