NORFOLK - Troop 1119 in Norfolk is about to celebrate its third-ever Eagle Scout.

For her Eagle Scout project, Lucy Yost decided to do something that hit close to home. Yost’s idea was to replace or repair markers that are either missing or have been damaged at the gravesites of veterans in Prospect Hill.

"My great grandpa fought in the war," Yost said at Prospect Hill on Monday. "It's very touching to me. And now being out here has made this more than just an Eagle Scout project."

Yost worked with the Madison County Veterans Services office and the local Elk’s Club to identify the markers that needed work. Yost quickly found out that the project was much bigger than she realized.

"We only have eight markers on hand," Yost said Monday. "We're looking into the logistics because the number of markers that we need is over 160."

Yost and the rest of Troop 1119 got done what they could on Monday, and she says she plans on continuing her work at the cemetery even after her scouting days are done.

"Everybody out here is somebody's dad or brother or grandma or grandpa. They're somebody to somebody," Yost said. "It touches a lot of people. Whether they have had family who served or know somebody who served in the war, it's very touching to them. We've had a lot of good responses."
