Garden City native Capt. Logan Jones was named commanding officer of Naval Support Activity Annapolis during a change of command and retirement ceremony on May 30, according to information provided by Naval Academy Public Affairs.
Jones, the son of Dave and Diana Jones, both of Garden City, graduated from the Naval Academy in 1987 with a degree in oceanography. Following commissioning, Jones completed the naval nuclear power training program before reporting to his initial assignment on board the USS Yorktown. He subsequently served on board the USS Theodore Roosevelt, USS Enterprise, USS Barry and USS Cole.
Jones commanded the USS Reuben James from 2004 to 2006 and then returned to the USS Enterprise as the reactor officer.
He also served on the commander's staffs at Naval Air Forces East and U.S. Joint Forces Command. Prior to taking command of Naval Support Activity Annapolis, he commanded the USS Vicksburg.
Jones holds a master of science in joint command, control and communications from the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, Calif., and a master of arts in national security and strategic studies from the Naval War College.
NSA Annapolis is home to more than 600 military and civilian employees and numerous facilities, including military housing, the award-winning bachelor enlisted quarters, and the Fleet and Family Support Center.
The base maintains the yard patrol craft used for the Naval Academy seamanship training program for midshipmen and provides support services to the Chesapeake Bay Detachment at Randle Cliff, Md., and the Navy Operational Support Center in Baltimore.
