GOOD-BYE TO A BROTHER ROLAND “ROLLIE” LAMBERT. Rollie was the past Chapter 1054 President and was currently serving as the VVA State President. He also was the Commander of Frank H. Adams Post 750 of Veterans of Foreign Wars. But most of all Rollie was a loving father and husband and a very good friend to all the veterans the he knew. Rollie was a great motivator, but always knew when a listening ear was needed. After graduating from high school in 1967, he enlisted in the U.S. Army and served his first tour in Vietnam in the fall of 1968. After three tours, he was honorably discharged in 1970.

On Oct 3rd, a Military Honor Guard Practice was sponsored by the Marietta American Legion Post 156 for the Vietnam Veterans of America, Chapter 1054, Watertown, SD. Also represented were the American Legion Post 441 of Bellingham, the American Legion Post 158 of Madison and the Disabled American Veterans Milbank-Sisseton Chapter 19. The practice centered around the rendering of Honors and Ceremonies at a veterans funeral including the three rifle volley salute and the proper display of the Color Guard flags. An excellent dinner was provided by the Marietta American Legion Auxiliary. The practice provided an opportunity for comradeship and cooperation between various Veterans Service Organizations in the area.
