Jones' Tears As Soldier Son Graduates


Movie tough guy Vinnie Jones fought back tears on Thursday as he watched his teenage son graduate from the British Army.

The former soccer hard man-turned-actor flew in from his current residence in Los Angeles to Yorkshire, England to attend 17-year-old Aaron Ellison-Jones' ceremony.

Snatch star Jones says, "It was very emotional. I've done a few things in my life and he's starting out in his and it's probably bigger than anything that I've achieved...

"This lad is going to protect our country so I'm very proud of him."

Junior soldier Ellison-Jones is now set to join the Household Cavalry's Blues and Royals regiment - the same one British royal Prince Harry fights for.
