ASHBURN, GA (WALB) -

An Ashburn Marine takes his place of honor on a veteran's wall beside others from Turner County who has served our country. Sgt. Robert McMillian's mother put her son's plaque on the new Veterans wall dedicated last month at Elrod Park.     

McMillian was supposed to be there Thursday, but he got called back to Afghanistan a little early Wednesday night after a brief visit home.     

His mother is proud of her son and the other troops who serve our country so bravely.

"All the one's standing around me, has done a great job, it's not just one person, it's all of them," said Jeretha McMillian, mother.    

There are currently 192 plaques on this wall, honoring veterans from Turner County.
