Veterans making solo treks across country for PTSD awareness | Stripes

Soldiers perpetuate a lifelong camaraderie that extends to all corners of the country, and Army Veteran Eli Smith has set out to make others aware of that connection. By hiking more than 13,000 miles to each corner of the United States, Smith will be raising awareness for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and suicide within the veteran community. He will be marching for the next three years to do so.

The Ohio native began his journey in Pensacola, Florida, and stopped in Deming for the weekend on his way to California.
