Veteran Walking State to Raise Awareness
WSIL -- One Illinois man has always dreamed of giving back to his fellow Vietnam veterans, and now he's making that dream a reality. Bill Trow is walking the length of Illinois from south to north in just 19 days.
As cars and trucks drive up and down Highway 51, you'll find one man who's marching to the beat of his own drum.
"I retired about a year ago, and I came up with the idea that I wanted to try to raise some funds for the Vietnam Veterans of America to try to help out guys that weren't as fortunate as I was," said Vietnam veteran Bill Trow.
"The Haven is for our veterans, for our military to use any way they see fit. And, if we can help out on his travels to fill this out, that would be wonderful," said Sherry Rix, caretaker at the Haven.
To make a pledge, you can email Bill at: email@example.com. He does not have access to his email right now. But once he is back home, he will respond to all emails.
