Dr. Jeff Jones, BCM associate professor of urology, NASA/JSC flight surgeon and a captain in the United States Navy reserves, presented a flag and certificate of authenticity to U.S. Sen. John Cornyn at a ceremony in Houston last month. Jones' unit, VMFA-112, Marine Air Group 41, was recalled to active duty with MAG 26 last year and sent to Al Asad in the Al Anbar province of Iraq.

The flag had been flown during three combat missions in Iraq in appreciation of Cornyn's efforts to acquire relief funding for military families whose loved ones were victims of the Fort Hood shootings, and his ongoing support of men and women in the armed forces.
