The city of Pawtucket is getting ready to honor a local soldier who was killed in Afghanistan, Sergeant Dennis Poulin.
Massachusetts Army National Guard specialist Dennis Poulin grew up in Pawtucket. He died two years ago in Germany, where he was evacuated after his vehicle overturned. He was 26.
Next Monday, Veterans Day, a memorial honoring his life will be held at the entrance to Slater Park in Pawtucket.
Pawtucket Mayor Donald Grebien will join Poulin’s mother, Doris, relatives and others to dedicate a stone monument.
