Fulton, Mississippi Town Hall Meeting with The Walking Veteran
“A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words”.
Let The Walking Veteran brief you about the meeting with the mayor of Fulton, Mississippi. He had a 9am appointment with Mayor Weatherford. During the meeting the usual discussion concerning the purpose of the walk, veterans issues on the local level, autograph of book, photo and video. When The Walking Veteran had noticed that the mayor seem to be busy and perhaps going to a meeting, etc he began to bring the discussion to a end. Everyone does know that The Walking Veteran is also The Talking Veteran. The mayor had another plan and ask him to follow her.
The mayor had escorted The Walking Veteran into the council chambers. He had noticed a lot of people there that included police, sheriff, state trooper, city and county personnel, and other citizens. There were also members of The America Legion that was there prior to leaving to attend a state convention 200 miles away. The Walking Veteran had assumed that he was going to sit in a city counsel meeting. Was he in for a surprise! The meeting was all about The Walking Veteran and the issues that make The Walk Across America important. He had spoke for about and hour and refreshments were served along with gifts presented to him. Then came the time for photos. The mayor had the group to gather together for a group picture. The Walking Veteran doesn’t have to talk a thousand words about how wonderful the people of Fulton are and the support for veterans is beyond amazing. Why doesn’t The Walking Veteran have to speak a thousand words? The picture says it all.
Thank you Fulton Mississippi, Thomas Hudson, The Walking Veteran
