Statement from Allan D. Cors, Founding Chairman 

National Museum of Americans in Wartime 

In honor of John D. Jenkins

John D. Jenkins personified the best in American citizenry and patriotism.

He proudly served his country as an Army Lieutenant Colonel during two tours of duty in Vietnam. He then dedicated his life to public service and was a role model for all.

Supervisor Jenkins was a passionate advocate for the creation of the National Museum of Americans in Wartime and enthusiastically supported our vision for this unique educational experience in Dale City, Virginia. Museum leadership and volunteers were privileged to join with others in honoring both John and Ernestine at the Leadership Prince William Evening of Excellence award dinner last June, where Prince William County’s next generation of leaders were inspired by the clear recognition of his extraordinary contributions to his community and country.

Truly, John will be missed, but the impact of his remarkably well lived life will be with us for the generations to come. Thank you, John.
