(Warwick, RI) -- A VFW post was rededicated on Saturday for a Rhode Islander who was deployed to both Iraq and Afghanistan after the 9/11 attack. Adam DeCiccio, a Cranston native who served as an Army sergeant, died last December at age 37. His family says his passing was due to the effects of the wars but chose not to elaborate on the specific cause. Governor Dan McKee and Rhode Island's congressional delegation were among those in attendance at the dedication ceremony at the VFW Post 272 in Warwick. DeCiccio was celebrated for his work with veterans who had PTSD after his military career ended.
