HASLET, Texas -- A fallen solider is getting a very unique honor.
Teenager Cameron James said he mowed this the lawn to resemble the American flag to remember Kevin Christian.
Christian, 21, died Sunday from a self inflicted gunshot wound while patrolling the U.S.-Mexico border, the Military Times reported.
James said he and Christian were friends who met while Boy Scouts.
"He was just a role model for me, so I wanted to make sure he was missed by even the people who didn't know him," Cameron James said.
It took the 17-year-old about four hours to mow the flag. He put the mower on different settings and used a weed eater to finish the job.
