Iraq War Veteran Walks Across America, Stops in Austin

Army National Guard veteran and Iraq war veteran Troy Yocum stopped off in Austin today to meet Mayor Lee Leffingwell and sign a Louisville Slugger baseball bat. Yocum is hiking 7,000 miles across America, banging his drum and sounding the call for $5 million to help military families in need. Yocum, who started his trip from his hometown of Louisville, KY. in April 2010, is joined on his journey by his wife Mareike and two dogs Emmie and Harley.
