In 1958 - 59 Rolf and I were with the Big Red One at Fort Riley, KS. Our boss was SFC Leigh P. Hopp and he was a trip. Rolf was from the UK and both of us were SSGs working the desk and usually relieving each other. I always respected him and learned a lot from him.

If memory serves, I met Rolf while I was assigned to the infamous 2nd CID in Soul, Korea (circa 1966/'67). I did not know him that well as I was the new kid on the block (new to the CID, etc), but as I recall, he was an experienced agent who was well respected and liked by all. Rest in peace Mr. Jones.

I did not meet Rolf until after he retired. He was selling insurance and he was teaching at CTC. I had a good amount of contact with him in fact I had him in my home at one time. He used to tell me some of the situations he would get into.

I did not serve on active duty with Rolf but I met him after he retired. I will remember him and pray for him.

I remember Rolf. He was a polygraph examiner at Ft Hood when I was working at the Field Office as a MPI augmentee, pending my CID application. He encouraged me to get my college credits together so I could better qualify as a CID WO. He never doubted I would be accepted as a CID SA, nor that I would make a good WO. He was an inspiration with his encouragement. I had a good career and met those objectives he set for me. Rest in Peace, Rolf. Thanks.

Rolf was the polygraph examiner at Fort Hood when I arrived in 1976. He was a great mentor and he will be missed!

Rolf was definately ONE OF A KIND. I will always remember him as one of my favorites. When I was his Ops Officer, no matter what I even suggested to him he would do; I believe if I had told him I wanted a pink elephant, he would have produced it someway.Rolf had dropped out of the CIDAA due to health reasons, but he loved the CID and will be greatly missed by all who knew him, especially me-- Rest in Peace My Friend
