The City of Pawtucket is offering local families the chance to recognize veterans in a special way. Pawtucket Parks and Recreation is promoting its Veterans Flag Program. The program lets families of deceased veterans have their personal funeral flag flown over the Pawtucket War Veterans' Memorial Scallop Shell in Slater Park. The flag stays up for two months and is then returned to the family.
