For folks in Kansas City, Missouri:Iraq War Veteran Troy Yocum is hiking 7,000 miles across America, banging his drum and sounding the call for $5 million to help military families in need. With Emmie the SuperDog by his side, he took the first step of his 16-month quest on April 17, 2010.
This is a great cause.ACT (Americans For Conservative Training) has partnered with Troy while he is here in Kansas City. We're looking for volunteers to help walk with Troy and attend several of the events planned for him during his stay in KC. Here are some opportunities that are available:
