050527-N-6077T-007 Annapolis, Md. (May 27, 2005) - Father of the U.S. Navy, John Paul Jones, is entombed at the U.S. Naval Academy and is guarded by Midshipman 24-hours a day, three hundred sixty five days a year. Jones is forever immortalized by uttering the words, ?I have not yet begun to fight?, during the battle between USS Bonhomme Richard and HMS Serapis, off the coast of England in 1779. Jones was buried in a pauper?s grave in Paris. More than a century later, his remains were returned to the United States and placed at the academy as a national shrine.
