Fallen Clark County soldier to be honored by community

By , Columbian staff writer

Clark County residents are invited to attend a ceremony honoring a local soldier who died during service as a part of the “Never To Be Forgotten” series.

The Community Military Appreciation Committee is hosting a memorial for U.S. Army Staff Sgt. Ronald L. Paulsen, who was killed in Tarmiya, Iraq, on Oct. 17, 2006.

The committee and Patriot Guard Riders will arrive at the Fort Vancouver Barracks at 987 McClellan Road at 11:45 a.m. Oct. 17.

Paulsen’s family and other guests will begin arriving at 12:30 p.m. The ceremony is scheduled to last an hour.

The memorial series honors the anniversary of the deaths of Clark County soldiers who served overseas since Sept. 11, 2001. The series began in 2018 and hosts memorials every three years.
