May 2, 2012

WOONSOCKET — An atheist group from Wisconsin may want the World War I monument bearing a prominent Latin cross removed, but a throng of people rallied around the marker yesterday with another idea, expressed in thunderous enthusiasm.
“It’s staying where it is,” boomed Lt. Gen. Reginald Centracchio, former adjutant general of the Rhode Island National Guard. “It stays where it is, as it is, right here in the city of Woonsocket. A round of applause and cheers rose from the sea of faces as Centracchio’s voice boomed over a high-decibel PA system, “This is the line in the sand.”
