      Monument to be dedicated to National Guard soldier

      City officials in Pawtucket will honor a native son on Veterans Day.

      They will dedicate a monument to Massachusetts National Guard Specialist Dennis Poulin.

      He died a non-combat death in Afghanistan, when his military vehicle rolled over.

      Poulin had been deployed as a gunner, and was planning to come home on leave at the time of his death.

      He graduated from Tolman High in 20-04.

      Pawtucket's Mayor will join family members to dedicate Poulin's monument on November 11th.
