Veterans complete walk from Milwaukee to Los Angeles

MILWAUKEE (WITI) -- Two Operation Iraqi Freedom veterans finished their trek from Milwaukee to Los Angeles on Saturday, February 1st.

Tom Voss and Anthony Anderson began their journey in August 2013 and have walked the full 2,700 miles to California where they met up with Milwaukee County Executive Chris Abele.

Abele flew to Los Angeles to buy the men dinner and make good on a promise of a second $10,000 donation to their cause.

The veterans both suffer from post traumatic stress disorder and did the walk as a fundraiser for Dryhootch, an organization aimed at helping veterans adjust to normal life after returning from war.
