TULSA, Okla. None - A wedding photo of Jane and Christopher Horton now graces two billboards in Tulsa for a unique reason.
Christopher died in Afghanistan during a Taliban attack and Jane wants to put a public face on the losses suffered by the families of fallen soldiers.
The billboard is paid for by Operation Never Forgotten.
Jane Horton, who lives in Owasso, told KRMG she contacted the organization when she heard about them because she felt it would be a unique way to honor her husband's memory.
She also said she traveled to New York City recently and visited the site where the World Trade Center once stood, a reminder of why her husband wanted to enlist and go to war.
"He was only 26 years old (when he died) and he could have done anything he wanted to do. He was a very smart, driven guy. He went to war, trained to be a sniper and didn't come home."
She hopes the billboard will help bring home the message that Oklahoma's fallen soldiers were real people and they left behind real families.
"It means a lot to me just to put a face on a fallen soldier," she said.
The billboards are located on I-44 just west of 177th E. Ave., facing eastbound traffic.
The other is on the Broken Arrow Expressway at Mingo Road, facing westbound traffic.
