The Cape Cod Athletic Club extends its deepest sympathies to the family of United States Marine Corporal Nicholas G. Xiarhos of Yarmouthport.
Nicholas was serving in Afghanistan, where he lost his life participating in the latest push to secure the country. He served in Iraq and Afghanistan for three years, seeing some of the most intense fighting on both fronts.
His father, Steve Xiarhos, is a member of the Cape Cod Athletic Club and a lieutenant on the Yarmouth police force.
