BELMOPAN, Thurs. May 27, 2021– For the first time in Belize, a woman will be serving as Aide-de camp (a senior military officer who serves as a personal assistant to a head of state) to the Governor General.

Ensign Melissa Jones was hand-picked by the newly installed Governor General, Her Excellency Froyla Tzalam, to become the new Aide-de-camp (ADC) in Belize. The selection was made following interviews with various female officers of the Belize Defence Force and the Belize Coast Guard. This new appointment makes Jones the first female ADC and Coast Guard officer to be assigned to serve the Governor General of Belize.

A post on the Belize Coast Guard’s Facebook page says, “This is a proud moment for the Belize Coast Guard and we congratulate Ensign Melissa Jones on her success and her new appointment.”
