Listen to this story
A four-day tribute to U.S. and Canadian soldiers who have died in Iraq and Afghanistan will begin Friday morning in Lewis county. "Arlington North" will include nearly 4000 crosses for each member of the military killed in action since 2001. The crosses will be on display on the south slope of Snow Ridge Ski Resort in Turin, on the Tug Hill Plateau. Derek Davey, of Lowville, is organizing the weekend tribute. His son was killed in Iraq in 2005. Davey told Todd Moe that the event is intended to illustrate the human cost of war and offer a place to reflect and grieve.
