George Jones III joined the U.S. Army at the age of 17 and volunteered to be a combat medic in Vietnam. After returning from his tour, he became disillusioned with his treatment at home and re-enlisted. A few years later, he developed cancer but he credits luck for his recovery. Today, his work as a wood turner reminds him of the many second chances he’s received throughout his life.
