North Adams, Mass. (WGGB) — A fallen soldier was brought home and welcomed by the community Wednesday in North Adams.

20 year-old Mike DeMarsico, an Army PFC, was killed in Afghanistan recently by an improvised explosive device.

DeMarsico enlisted after graduating high school.

Fox23 News is reporting DeMarsico had just deployed for his first tour this winter.

Calling hours for the fallen soldier will be held this Friday from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Flynn & Danoli Funeral Home on West Main Street in North Adams.
