BOARDMAN, Ohio (WKBN) – The AMVETS group in Struthers is benefiting from a Boardman student’s Eagle Scout project.
Colin Russell, alongside some of his friends, began installing a flag retirement ceremony space on Saturday.
The grounds will have a fire pit surrounded by stones, along with a reflection garden.
Russell said he knows a lot of military members and would like to give back to them.
“My grandpa was in the military, a Vietnam veteran. My neighbor was a World War II Veteran — so just a lot of veterans and I thought why not give back to them?”
Russell said the project should be completed in three weeks.
