Help this veteran complete his trek and reach his goal!!  Read the story below, and please share via facebook and your websites/email.  I just watched some of the video interviews, they explain Troy’s mision (especially this one); this is a very worthy cause.  Here is his KTDY interview Troy Yocum Drumhike

Iraq War Veteran Troy Yocum is hiking 7,000 miles across America, banging his drum and sounding the call for $5 million to help military families in need. With his wife Mareike and Emmie the SuperDog by his side, they took their first step of his 16-month quest on April 17, 2010. Now they have completed the western leg of the journey, all the way from Kentucky to California and have walked back east to Texas. Funds raised are handled through The Wish Upon a Hero Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit charity.
