Honoring veterans with crosses
Saturday morning, volunteers rolled up their sleeves and placed crosses for veterans who lost their lives in combat with each cross representing one of the 122 men who died from Albany or Dougherty County.
Organizer Mark Mixon says he has mixed feelings about this celebration. "I'm proud that we are Americans; privileged to be able to honor these men for sacrifices that they and their families made for your country."
It took 9 months to make all the crosses.
They will be up until Tuesday morning.
