Lewis Rolband, a member of Headquarters, Headquarters Battery, 1-113th Field Artillery Battalion, received coins from Army Col. Clifford Wilkins, chief of Joint Staff, center, for the NCNG, in recognition of their loyalty and selfless service to our military veterans at Joint Forces Headquarters in Raleigh on Jan. 15, 2014. These two soldiers took the initiative to commemorate the service of a former Army veteran when another funeral honors team was unable to facilitate due to a serious motor vehicle accident that injured 10 military personnel on Jan. 3, 2014. The coin, in the shape of an arrowhead, signifies that on that particular day, these soldiers were at the tip of the spear in the mission.
