      146 men and women fought the ultimate fight and sadly didn't make it back home.

      On Sunday, those heroes were honored as 146 crosses were placed to honor their legacy.

      Local veterans, speakers, and the community came out to help celebrate those service men.

      Marvin Mixon says, "over the 239 years of this country we've lost in actual combat well over 800,000 men and women."

      The heroes honored are from Lee and Dougherty County.
