Jones' public revelation comes eight months after a transgender former SEAL, Kristin Beck, decided to come out publicly in her book "Warrior Princess."
Kristin Beck, who as "Chris" served 20 years as a SEAL, struggled with her sexuality while fighting alongside special operations warriors in some of the most dangerous places in world.
In her book, Beck says she "considered living as the woman he felt himself to be for a very long time, but while he was serving as a SEAL, he couldn't do it."
Jones told ABC News that he was "inspired" by Beck's courage to come out publicly. And so far, he has no regrets.
"Everything has had its purpose and has put me on the path that lead me to the most amazing husband and son anyone could hope for," he said. "God has truly blessed me."
