Teenager spends hours mowing American flag into lawn

“A Texas teenager spent hours ahead of the Fourth of July mowing the American flag into his lawn to honor a fallen friend and soldier.

Cameron James, 17, completed the special landscaping project to honor his friend, Army Pfc. Kevin Christian, KTVT-TV reports. Christian died by suicide Sunday while deployed along the Mexico/Arizona border.

Local television stations captured aerial views of the project, which took James about four hours, according to KXAS-TV.

“Our mower has different settings, so I just changed the settings so the grass would be different lengths for the stripes,” James told the TV station. He added he used a string trimmer for the stars of the flag.

“It was a lot of work. But it was worth it.””
