Navy veteran Tommy Zurhellen walked across America raising awareness about the plight of our veterans, especially suicide and homelessness.
He raised over $45,000, and after his trek ended in Poughkeepsie, said "the walk has ended, but the journey is just beginning."
As a Navy veteran myself who once was homeless, I applaud Tommy Zurhellen. He has made America aware of the need to help our suffering veterans, who gave their full measure of devotion and service to our nation.
