Lee county veteran memorial

April 12, 2008 A Lee County Eagle Scout candidate has selected a very ambitious service project to demonstrate his service to his community, and his country.

For his service project Jeremy Kluball chose to erect a tribute for all veterans who served in Operation Desert Storm and Iraq. This is what the tribute will look like after all the money has been raised to have a six inch stone engraved on both sides.

The project is a culmination of everything Jeremy has done to become a scout. "I came up with a memorial for the veterans who've served or who are serving in Iraqi freedom, and in desert storm, It's going to be next to the P.O.W. flag. It's going to be a granite memorial engraved on both sides so you can see it going across the highway." Said Jeremy Kluball.

When the project is completed, Jeremy and other boys from troop 210 will dig and help to place the stone into place in downtown Leesburg.

The memorial will cost approximately fifteen hundred dollars, and more money is needed. Jeremy hopes to raise the money and have the tribute in place before the Leesburg Memorial Day Service and Dedication Day in May.

To support the memorial call (229) 869-0769 or (229) 317-6856.
