SOUTHEASTERN, NC (WECT) -

A Marine from Camp Lejeune is marching all the way to California with hopes of raising $100,000 for injured veterans.

Marine veteran Justin Kuhel walked 400 miles in 2012 to raise awareness and $13,000 in donations for injured veterans, now he's going to walk 2700 miles from coast to coast across the US.

The five month walking trek across the USA started on Friday, May 23 from Camp LeJeune to help wounded veterans through the Head Strong Project and Help Our Military Heroes organizations.

The march is expected to end in October at Camp Pendleton, CA.
