Thomas Wayne Hudson, “The Walking Veteran,” passed through Muskogee on Monday. Hudson is walking from Las Vegas to Washington to bring attention to “the abuses that veterans endure,” according to his website, www.walkingveteran.com.

While in Muskogee, he visited the regional office of the Department of Veterans Affairs on behalf of a disabled veteran, hoping to help her get benefits for service-related injuries. Hudson’s website says his journey will conclude with a rally in Washington on Veterans Day.
