DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) - A former marine’s  tour of duty was over years ago, but a wish to serve, has him walking across the country.  CBS 11 caught up with Josh Lydell as he walked through Dallas on Sunday.

He has been walking on America’s roads since March 3rd when he left Charleston, South Carolina, trying to drum up attention for the Wounded Warrior Project.

Lydell says he has lost count of how many pairs of shoes he’s gone through over the last 11-hundred miles, and when he needs a little pick me up, he just thinks about those he has met along the way.
