The Walking Veteran in The Chronicle Independence


Thomas Wayne Hudson, known as “The Walking Veteran”, has walked across ten different states to talk to voters and public officials about the need to restructure how the US Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) operates. He recently walked through Elgin, Lugoff and Camden to continue to talk about how to honor veterans. Each mile he walks is in honor of a veteran. His goal is to walk from Las Vegas to Washington, D.C. He has walked from Las Vegas through ten states in the south and hopes to arrive in Washington, D.C. for a rally on Veteran’s Day, November 12. He says in each city he hears stories of how veterans need help, but the VA is not properly delivering services. Hudson is a U.S. Air Force veteran. ( Katrina Moses)
