Army vet marching 1,800 miles to fight veteran suicide
Davis Winkie
 
An Army veteran of Afghanistan and non-profit founder is launching an 1,800-mile walk from Mississippi to West Point, New York in an effort to raise awareness and funds to combat veteran suicide and help other veterans to deal with complex grief.

Former infantry officer and West Point graduate Greg Washington will depart his family’s hometown of Mound Bayou, Mississippi on Friday to begin the trek up the eastern seaboard, with stops planned for rallies, fundraising events, and panel discussions along the way.

In a Thursday phone interview with Military Times, Washington shared his motivations for the undertaking and his struggle with mental health following the combat deaths of two of his friends and classmates, Army Capt. Scott Pace and Army 2nd Lt. Emily Perez.

Give a Democrat a fish and he'll eat for a day.  Teach a Democrat to fish and he'll steal your rod, take your wallet, sexually assault the fish, and then blame President Trump.
