The same Marine Corps Veteran that is currently traveling 5,000 miles cross country in a wheelchair to raise awareness for homeless veterans in America, is finally catching a break.

Rain, snow, sleet, or shine, David Whittaker can be seen traveling the highways across America. When the American Legion Post 57 on U.S. Highway 41 in Lake City heard about Whittaker’s struggles, they offered him a hot meal and a place for him to charge his wheelchair battery and GPS Tracking device’s battery.

Commander Larry Krull says that upon hearing about Whittaker’s journey, “It was a surprise to me. He’s got to have some drive to do this. I admire him for it. We’re behind him 100 percent.”

Whittaker hopes that spreading the word about his struggle will raise awareness for the increasing problem of homeless veterans on the streets of America and prompt the others to take action to help solve this problem.
