More info on Sgt. Jeffrey Jordan; Services Today at 11

The details honoring Sgt. Jeffrey Jordan's return home are being completed. The services include:

On Thursday between 0900 and 1100, Sgt Jordan's remains will arrive at Russell Field.
A procession led by the Patriot Guard Riders will take the body to Henderson and Sons Funeral Home on Maple Street near Lindale. It is presumed the route will be Martha Berry Highway South, left on Turner McCall Boulevard, right on Broad Street to 2nd Avenue. Left onto 2nd Ave. to Maple Street to Henderson and Sons.

Visitation will be held at Henderson and Sons Thursday afternoon or evening. Contact Henderson and Sons for times.

Services will be held Friday 1100 at Pleasant Valley South Baptist Church. Interment will be afterward at Oak Knoll Cemetery.

Please check Rome News-Tribune and other news sources Wednesday and Thursday to confirm this information or any changes.

It is hoped that the community will honor and respect Sgt. Jordan by lining the procession route from Russell Field to Henderson and Sons. The Russell Field/Armuchee portion and Broad Street areas are particularly appropriate. Flags, prayers, and salutes will be warranted and everyone is encouraged to be there and have a flag.

God bless Sgt. Jordan and the family and thank you all for honoring them.
