After he played pro football - for the Pittsburg Steelers – he worked in the law enforcement and security fields. He worked at the Republican National Convention in 1976. As a bodyguard he provided security for many people – including Angelo Dundee and Mohammed Ali.

Buffalo Soldiers

In honor of Black History Month, Sgt. Major “JJ” Jones will be telling us about The Buffalo Soldiers of the Indian Wars – 1866 - 1890. He will be presenting information about the often overlooked contribution that the Buffalo Soldiers made to the settlement of Arizona and the southwest. The importance of the Buffalo Soldiers during the Indian Wars is often neglected in our history books. They were often assigned the duties that no one else wanted in out-of-the-way places where no one else would go. James Jones will tell us the Buffalo Soldiers’ story.
