MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A former Marine is marching across America to raise money for wounded veterans.

Justin Kuhel is now on the fifth leg of his journey, with a stop in downtown Memphis.

He’s raising awareness and money for two veterans’ charities.

The walk started at Camp Lejeune in North Carolina and will end at Camp Pendleton in San Diego, for a total of more than 2,700 miles. His journey will last until October.

Kuhel is staying in Memphis until Saturday.

The two charities are the Headstrong Project and Help Our Military Heroes. Donations can be made online at March Across America or by stopping Kuhel during his walk.

    Thanks for posting. I saw them walking South on Austin Peay at the Wolf River yesterday. After I passed I saw the American Flag he was carrying from my mirror and wondered what was going on. Good for him! A tribute like this deserves MAJOR recognition, so that more funds will be raised.

    Camp Pendleton is NOT located in San Diego, but 40 miles and a 45 minute drive North of there.
