PROVIDENCE, R.I. – The parents of Sgt. Michael Paranzino say they're grateful for the comfort Rhode Islanders have been giving them since their son died last week in Afghanistan. Paranzino was an Army scout from Middletown and the 23rd Rhode Islander to die from a combat-related injury since 9/11. WRNI's Catherine Welch has this remembrance.
