EAGLE POINT, Ore. — Thanks to the hard work of volunteers and students, thousands of American Flags wave proudly at Eagle Point National Cemetery. “That’s the best way that you could possibly honor the veterans that have served this country and are currently serving this county,” said first time volunteer Lori Thickett. Thickett and her husband John were volunteering to place flags at the cemetery for the first time Friday, the first time they were honoring her father, who was laid to rest there. “He passed away in November of 2017 and he had served in the army,” Thickett said.
