The Young Marines has a new legal adviser.
David S. Jonas has been named a General Counsel for the organization by its Board of Directors, according to a release from the Young Marines.
Based out of Dumfries, the Young Marines is a national non-profit that runs an education and service program for children who are 8 years old and older.
“I am humbled to be named General Counsel to the Young Marines, an organization that does the crucial work of training our next generation of leaders by providing them with transferable skills,” Jonas said in a release. “The skills and values that were embedded in me during my Marine Corps service have proved invaluable throughout my life. These valuable skills, education, and experiences, unlike material belongings, can never be taken from you.”

He’s currently an adjunct professor at Georgetown University Law Center (GULC) and George Washington University Law School.
