  1. Nothing quite like being named after John Paul Jones, who was more brave & courageous than he was smart, mainly when it came to naval confrontations. Though he was not always cordial to the elite of the Continental Congress & therefore didn’t always receive the command he may have deserved, he still tore down the morale of the British right in their homeland as he sailed all around Britain & Ireland being a thorn in the British Naval’s side….LOL!!!
