 Capt. Richard Lynn Jones of Union City recently surprised his three children when he showed up at their respective schools while home spending two weeks’ military leave with his family. At Ridgemont Elementary School, he was greeted with an embrace and tears of joy from his 12-year-old daughter, Madison Jones. His son, Matthew, who is Madison’s 12-year-old twin, is also a student at Ridgemont and his younger daughter, Kensley, 2, is a student at Small World. A family member said it was hard to keep Jones’ visit a secret from his children, but the family managed to do so for a few months. Jones is a member of the Trenton-based 230th Engineer Battalion of the Tennessee Army National Guard, which is deployed to Kuwait until August.
