Cape Cod bridge honors Marine killed in Afghanistan
DENNIS — A dedication ceremony was held to name a bridge that passes over Route 6 in Dennis in honor of a Marine from Yarmouth who died in Afghanistan.
The ceremony Tuesday morning named the overpass between exits 8 and 9 on for Cpl. Nicholas Xiarhos. The 21-year-old Xiarhos was killed by a roadside bomb in July 2009. He grew up in Yarmouth, was a graduate of Dennis-Yarmouth Regional High School, and was the son of Yarmouth Deputy Police Chief Steven Xiarhos and his wife, Lisa.
Gov. Deval Patrick signed a bill in July to name the overpass after Xiarhos.
