Volunteers Place Crosses in Cemetery
JOHNSON COUNTY - Dozens of fallen veterans were honored Friday in Johnson County.
Volunteers put crosses alongside more than 100 head stones at Oxford Cemetery.
One volunteer, Kevin Hackathorn, made each of the crosses to go alongside an American flag at each site. This is the second year Hackathorn has set up this tribute at the cemetery.
He said he hopes to eventually have an individualized cross for each of the nearly 200 veterans buried there.
