LINCOLN â€” Eddie and Patty Fox had been familiar with Wreaths Across America's (WAA) work over the years to recognize the courage and sacrifices of U.S. veterans during the holidays, but it wasn't until about two years ago that the couple began to think about how their hometown of Lincoln could assist the WAA's mission.
The Fox's were the driving force behind the effort in 2011 to raise money for a Vietnam Veterans Memorial in town, which was dedicated at the Lincoln Senior Center on May 21 of that year. "It was a huge ceremony and over 400 people attended," says Patty.
LINCOLN --- Sometime tonight, Andre Soukhamthath and his family will finish packing their belongings and begin the long drive to Boca Raton, Fla. Thatâ€™s where they will move so the Woonsocket bantamweight can train full-time with the multi-talented Blackzilians combat team.
But before setting his sights on his future, Soukhamthath made sure that he took care of the present and concluded one of the greatest years by a Rhode Island MMA fighter with a magnificent performance in the co-feature of this past weekendâ€™s â€śCES MMA XXâ€ť show at the Twin River Event Center.
