Bob Jones – Chairman and Chief Executive Officer
A 1965 West Point graduate, Bob was commissioned a 2nd Lieutenant in the U.S. Air Force. He had flown 80+ combat missions over North Vietnam in the F-4 Phantom when his aircraft was shot down on January 18, 1968. After 62 months as a POW, Bob finally came home on March 14, 1973, a truly great day!
Bob joined American Airlines in 1976 and flew several types of aircraft over a 27 year career retiring in 2003 as a wide-body 777 International Captain flying to Europe and South America. He earned a law degree from the University of San Diego in 1988 and currently is a Florida realtor.
During his military career Bob was promoted to Major three years early and was awarded two Silver Stars, two Bronze Stars, two Purple Hearts, the Legion of Merit, seven Air Medals, and the POW medal. A disabled veteran, he will bring his knowledge and association with veterans and their needs. Additionally, his organizational and management skills will assist Veterans Sourcing Group in helping to expand employment opportunities for our Veterans – our Heroes.
Marine Captain Reg Dryzga joined the Marines in 1959 after graduating high school.

He was appointed to West Point in 1961, graduated in 1965 and commissioned a 2nd Lieutenant in the US Marine Corp. Reg Dryzga is a combat decorated Marine Viet Nam veteran having served as a Captain in 1968 and 1969. He resigned his commission after the POWs came home in 1973. Reg went on to earn an MBA from the Wharton School.
From 2003 to 2007, Reg served 42 months as a civilian volunteer in Iraq, embedded with various Marine units in Anbar province. Much of the time Reg lived “outside the wire” with the second largest tribe in Iraq. Reg and the tribe performed reconstruction projects throughout Anbar Province. Reg will be instrumental in guiding the recruitment and training effort necessary to get our veterans ready to join VSG.
