MARION, Ill. -- The Marion VA Hospital welcomed a special guest Wednesday.

Former Cardinals closing pitcher Mark Littell is visiting veterans across the Midwest.

Littell grew up in a military family in the Missouri Bootheel and is very familiar with what it means to serve. 

Today, he took pictures, signed autographs and thanked the veterans for their service.

Mark Littell said, "I've met a lot of people today and they've made my day, but most importantly, I really appreciate the service they've given this country and that's one of the things I express."

Littell has teamed up with the Wake Foundation to visit the veterans. Thursday, they will head to Fayetteville, Arkansas to continue with their tour.
