Insight on Afghanistan, past and present

Marching to his own drummer

I just got a note about a former troopie doing a pretty cool thing to raise money to help military families and vets. He and his hound are walking across the country to support those who have served.

When SPC Troy Yocum came home from Iraq, he had just one thing on his mind: hike 7000 miles across America while drumming to raise $5 million for Military Families

President Barack Obama has urged Americans to come together in service. One United States soldier is answering his call by rallying Americans to help veterans. Starting April 17th, 2010, Iraq war veteran Specialist Troy Yocum will hike day after day for 15 months to spread the word that help is needed. With a great team backing him, he plans on drumming up support in more ways than one.

All of you dog lovers should go check out his companion, she is adorable.
