The Arms of Colonel Buck Jones

The arms were designed by David Vines White, Somerset Herald, College of Arms, London, using information provided by the armiger on units he had served in during his 30-year Army career. The horseshoes in the chief represent cavalry, and the Sable and Or colours are those of the 1st Cavalry Division in which he served in Vietnam. The broken Embattlement with the Sword represents the Americans trying to help the South Vietnamese defend their country and originate from the basic design of the armiger’s first combat patch for serving with the 25th Infantry Division of the South Vietnamese Army in 1963-1964. The eagle heads represent the 101st Airborne Division, where he served in his first assignment after being commissioned as an officer.

The Crossed Cannons represent field artillery, and the Gules Fracted Bendlet represents the armiger’s Regiment, the 27th Field Artillery. He commanded the 2nd battalion, 27th Artillery Regiment in the 3rd Armored Division in Germany in 1975-1977. The Eagle Argent in the crest represents the Army rank of Colonel, the armiger’s retired rank and the motto, CUM AGIMUS EXPLEMUR is a Latin translation (someone in the College of Arms) of the family motto, ACTION IS SATISFACTION; the motto was “borrowed” from a large sign behind the bar of an enormous dance hall and bordello in the Kings Cross section of Sydney, Australia that was frequented by many members of the 1st Cavalry Division on R & R during the Vietnam War.

Born in Midland, Texas in 1938, the armiger is retired near Huntsville, Alabama where he worked for an engineering firm that designed and tested joint missile defense systems.
