HASLET, Texas (CNN) – A fallen solider is being honored in texas in a very unique way.
A teen says he mowed the lawn in Haslet, Texas to resemble the American flag to remember Kevin Christian.
The 21-year-old soldier died Sunday from a self-inflicted gunshot wound while patrolling the U.S. border with Mexico.
Cameron James says he knew Christian through the Boy Scouts.
“Last year my dad wanted me to do this to celebrate 4th of July, and then this year, just like last week, one of my best friends from scouting died in the army. He was just a role model for me so I wanted to make sure he was missed by even the people who didn’t know him,” James said.
It took the 17-year-old about four hours to make the flag. He put the mower on different settings and used a weed eater to finish the job.
