Part Of Bloomington Cemetery Named For Fallen Solider
It's the kind of bittersweet honor parents wish they never receive. Managers at Evergreen Memorial Cemetery in Bloomington on Saturday named a part of their cemetery for Sergeant Joshua Rodgers, a local soldier who died in Afghanistan earlier this year. Rodgers' mother Vonda said her son would be happy to be in such a peaceful place. Cemetery managers say the Sergeant Joshua P. Rodgers Veterans Field will be the final resting place for other local soldiers and their families.
