NEW LONDON, CT 06320
Sadly we are called to stand a Flag Line for Robert G. Hecker Sr., YN1 (SS), US Navy, who served honorably from 1979 to 1988. He was awarded the Good Conduct Medal (Second Award), Sea Service Deployment Ribbon, Meritorious Unit Commendation, Enlisted Submarine Breast Insignia, SSBN Deterrant Patrol Insignia and two Letters of Commendation. Rob was the Director of the Connecticut Chapter of Honor and Remember, as well as the Post Commander of the Waterford VFW. He was also a member of United States Submarine Veterans, Groton Base. Rob was a strong supporter of CT Patriot Guard Riders, therefore I am promoting him to Ride Captain Posthumously, in recognition of his efforts in bringing the Honor and Remember CT Chapter and CT PGR together.
We will stand a Flag Line at the Funeral Home during the service there. We will provide a Motorcycle Flag Bike Escort from the Funeral Home to the cemetery for the interment, where Military Honors will be rendered.
Senior Ride Captain Gregg Barratt will be RCIC and Flags will be on site.
