ing trip, Aberle and her husband, Tim, renewed
their wedding vows at Cana, went out on the Sea
of Galilee, visited each site of the 20 mysteries of

'65, are pictured at the 2016
Military Ball. The two hadn't
seen each other in more than
40 years. After Stocker re-
turned from Vietnam in 1967
he was assigned to complete
his five-year ROTC commit-
ment in the 98th Battalion in
Rochester. When he reported
for duty, the commanding of-
ficer, then-Col. Rappl, wel-
comed him and said,
"Lieutenant, we have some-
thing in common" and held
out his SBU class ring. Rappl
went on to become one of
the highest-ranking officers
of more than 1,000 St.
Bonaventure ROTC gradu-
ates, retiring as a major gen-
eral. "It was an honor to
serve under Col. Rappl for
three years," said Stocker.
