Stephen Zaremski
WWII US Army Air Force Veteran
Bristol, CT
TUE APR 24th 1100hrs

Patriot Guard and associates,

 Sadly we are called to stand for Stephen Zaremski, who served our country honorably in the U.S. Army Air Force in WWII and also as a former Chief of the Bristol Fire Department, may he rest in peace.

 Stephen was a World War II Army Air Force veteran and served in the China-Burma-India Theater. He flew on the C-46 Curtis Commando over The Hump, which was the supply line for all troops and equipment to China and Burma. The Hump was the name given by Allied pilots to the eastern end of the Himalayan Mountains, over which they flew military transport aircraft from India to China.

Stephen flew as an aerial engineer with the rank of sergeant. He was decorated with the Air Medal after completing fifty flights. He received five Bronze Campaign Stars, the Presidential Unit Citation, and the Chinese War Memorial Medal.

When Stephen returned home from the service in 1946, he joined the Bristol Fire Department. He was promoted to Fire Lieutenant and Fire Captain in 1961 and in 1972, he was promoted to Deputy Fire Chief. He became commander of the newly made Fourth Platoon. In 1977 he was appointed acting Fire Chief.

We will stand a flag line at the church only. 

Sr. RC Jack Casey will be RCIC and have flags on site.
