With flags in their hands, new friends by their sides, and nearly two months of wear-and-tear under their feet, a pair of former Marines passed through Nashville on Saturday, on a cross-country trek to help injured service members.
Adam Shatarsky and Chris Senopole are on the "Wounded Walk." The two started the journey from Camp Pendelton in California on June 15 to raise money for the Wounded Warrior Program.
"The grand plan is to change as many lives, help as many people as possible and raise funds and awareness," said Shatarsky and Senopole.
So far the two have walked more than 2,000 miles, and they say some people have joined them on their walk.
Shatarsky and Senopole have raised $49,000; they hope to raise $100,000 by the time they arrive in Washington, D.C., by Oct. 1.
