Sadly we are called to stand a Flag Line for Rollie D. Stephens, Chief Warrant Officer-3, US Army, who also served Honorably in the US Navy and the US Air Force before retiring from the Army. Rollie served over 20 years and retired in 1974, with 2 tours in Viet Nam.

We will stand a Flag Line at the Funeral Home and the Cemetery. We will provide a motorcycle Flag Escort to the Cemetery. This mission is at the same time as the Welcome Home in Wolcott, CT.
