North Texas teen Cameron James wanted to do something special for a friend in the U.S. Army who died last week, so he did the most patriotic thing he could come up with.
The 17-year-old spent four hours in the brutal summer heat Monday mowing his large front yard in Haslet into a giant American flag, complete with all 50 stars buzzed into the turf with a weed eater, KXAS reports.

“Our mower has different settings, so I just changed the settings so the grass would be different lengths for the strips,” James said.
“It was a lot of work, but it was worth it,” he said.
Drone - Footage - James - Creation - Shows
Drone footage of James’ creation shows Old Glory is clearly visible from hundreds of feet away, covering the entire yard in front of his large suburban home in Haslet. The tribute, James said, is dedicated to his friend who passed away last week while serving in the Army in Arizona, and it’s timed to coincide with the country’s Independence Day.
Media did not identify James’ friend, but the Associated Press reported on two soldiers who were found dead in southern Arizona last month, including Pfc. Kevin J. Christian of Haslet, Texas and Pfc. Steven Hodges of Menifee, California.

Army officials told the news service Christian, 21, was found dead near Ajo, Arizona on June 23, while Hodges was found dead on June 1 near Nogales, Arizona. Christian was an infantryman. Hodges was a grenadier.
Army officials launched an investigation into the deaths but do not believe foul play is involved, the AP reports.

James’ lawn is among others designed to show appreciation for the men and women who serve in the Armed Forces on the Fourth of July.
