Walking Veteran makes his way through Memphis

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Thomas Wayne Hudson is on a mission.

On May 2, he began walking in Las Vegas.

His goal: to bring awareness of the abuses our veterans face and to get congressional leaders to make necessary changes.

“Seems like a mountain to climb!” Hudson wrote on The Walking Veteran Facebook page.” One step at a time. If we fall into a mind set of apathy then nothing will ever be done and the status quo will prevail. We might not be able to do a lot but we can try, one step at a time.”

Since that day, he’s passed through several cities including Flagstaff, Oklahoma City, Fort Smith and Little Rock meeting people as he keeps moving, spreading his message.

Tuesday morning, he walked across the I-55 bridge into Downtown Memphis.

But his journey doesn’t end in the Bluff City.

Hudson continued on his march, only pausing for a brief second to speak with the locals.

He will eventually make it all the way to Washington, D.C. in late October.
