Jones, 17, is a Cadet 1st Lieutenant with the Civil Air Patrol Delta Cadet Squadron.
During the nearly three weeks that much of Paonia's water users were under a state-mandated boil-water order, volunteers of all ages came from throughout the North Fork area and beyond to help. For more than two weeks they distributed water at Town Hall, answered questions, checked in on the elderly and shut-ins, and offered their professional services and vehicles.
The Civil Air Patrol recently conducted a promotion ceremony at Delta Middle School, the first to be held in Delta in many years.
Cadet/Senior Airman Jezreel Couch, Cadet/Tech Sgt. Micah Yeager, Cadet/Airman Bolton Couch and Cadet/Chief Master Sgt. Jack Jones were promoted to their current ranks.
Civil Air Patrol, the official auxiliary of the U.S. Air Force, performs about 85 percent of inland search and rescue missions in the U.S. The squadrons search for lost hikers or hunters, locate downed aircraft and transport emergency personnel or medical materials.
