NORTH SMITHFIELD, R.I.—A Rhode Island family is hosting a fundraiser for a Marine from Lincoln who is undergoing rehabilitation after losing both his legs in Afghanistan.
Cpl. Kevin Dubois (du-BWAH') was injured by an improvised explosive device in July while setting up a perimeter for a medical helicopter sent to recover a member of his unit. The Lincoln High School graduate is at Balboa Naval Medical Center in San Diego undergoing rehabilitation.
The fundraiser is being held Friday evening at the Sayles Hill Rod and Gun Club.
Dubois' cousin, Lindsay McNally, says a September fundraiser provided a "great jumpstart" but that the family is hoping to raise more to help Dubois and his wife Kayla buy a house and car. They married in March shortly before his deployment.
