It is with deep personal concern that I officially inform you that your son, Captain James H. Jones, has been missing in South Viet Nam since 17 Jun 1967.
The letter every military family dreads was delivered by an officer to Buster and Myrtle Jones on Monday, June 19, 1967. Their son, an Air Force dentist, was one of 56 people aboard a turboprop C130 transport aircraft attempting a takeoff from the An Khê Army Airfield. It crashed at the end of the runway.
Rescue personnel are on the scene and are checking names of survivors against the passenger manifest. Pending further information your son will be listed officially as missing , Major General G.B. Greene.
On Wednesday June 21 their worst fears were realized when they were told their son was among the 34 dead. He was the first Surry County fatality of the Vietnam War.
Born in Surry County, Dr. Jones was an honor graduate from each JJ Jones High School, A& T College, and Howard University. A member of the ROTC, he was commissioned an officer upon enlistment in 1964. At the time of the crash he was just a month shy of his 28th birthday.

Museum Reopens For Public
The Mount Airy Museum of Regional History opened her doors for the first time in almost six months last weekend.
We scrambled to put spring decorations away in the gift shop to set up hand sanitation stations to shine up the stainless steel of the elevator doors to make sure the exhibit spaces were fresh and dusted and presentable for our guests. We joked that wed forgotten how to be open.
And we wondered if anyone would come. Would a history museum be on the list of places to go for the folks out and about for Labor Day?
We neednt have worried. Come Saturday morning, as we prepared to unlock the doors, there were folks waiting in the courtyard!
This year, 2020, was to have been the beginning of an exciting renovation for the Mount Airy Museum of Regional History. The first major overhaul and expansion of exhibits in more than a decade.
Work began in December 2019 and we were moving ahead slowly as the New Years Eve Pajama Rama Party happened, followed by some birthday party rentals and a wedding. We were carefully packing artifacts away when COVID-19 arrived on American shores.
The work was just getting messy when Gov. Cooper closed museums in an abundance of caution. We hunkered down, determined to take advantage of the down time to barrel ahead with the work.
We were, I will admit, caught happily off-guard when Gov. Cooper announced on Sept. 1 that museums could open for the first time since March.
Of that number, though, only 7.5% are history museums.

Mount Airy Museum Of Regional History
Ours is an all American story – typical of how communities grew up all across our great nation. While our story takes place in the back country of northwestern North Carolina at the foot of the Blue Ridge Mountains, it is likely to bear many similarities to the development of crossroads, towns, and cities throughout America.It had taken little more than 100 years for the corridors along the coastline of this still-new continent to overflow. As tensions grew and conflicts flared, the pioneer spirit set in. Families literally packed up everything they owned and headed into the unknown-searching for the “promised land.”
The Purpose of the Mount Airy Museum of Regional History is to Collect, Preserve and Interpret the Natural, Historic, and Artistic Heritage of the Region
Adopted by the Board of Directors October 9, 1995

What Is History
The discipline trains both the mind and the imagination of those who study it. History imparts the vital skills of discernment and synthesis through critical thinking, reading, and writing skills. In particular, History confronts students with worlds, times, places, and cultures-including their own-in ways they never before considered.
To study history is to affirm the commitment to exploring issues of diversity within both a national and global context. To study history is to engage intellectually in the confrontation of peoples, ideas, and values in part because the past, no matter the society, is a foreign country.
