Later this morning, the family of Army Sergeant Alex Fuller will bury him at the Massachusetts National Cemetery on Cape Cod.
The 21-year-old from Centerville had turned down a safer job as a radio operator to stay with his army buddies instead, on their dangerous patrols through Baghdad.
He died when a roadside bomb detonated near his vehicle on January 25th. WBUR's Curt Nickisch visited Fuller's family and has this story.
