Community called on to attend funeral in Carmel for Army veteran with no immediate family

The community is being called on to attend a funeral for a veteran who has no immediate family.  Army Veteran Ambrose Jacob will be remembered in Carmel today at 9:30am at Cargain Funeral Home on Fowler Avenue.  The Putnam County Veterans Agency says there are few events as sad as a Veteran dying alone and being forgotten, and hope many people honor this Vietnam Veteran.  Judy Fitzgerald of the NY Riders says they have been requested to do a 1/2 hour flag line for the service.  This was once part of the VFW Funeral Ritual, but their ranks are getting thinner.  Jacob was a Communication Center Specialist with the 44th Signal Battalion and eventually settled in Kent, New York.  While service in the Army he was awarded the National Defense Service Medal, Vietnam Campaign Ribbon with device-60 and Vietnam Service Ribbon with three overseas service bars.
