The Montana veteran who set off to walk across the United States returned home after finishing his journey.
Chuck Lewis, 62, began his walk back in March in Everett, Washington to raise awareness suicide awareness among veterans. He dubbed his cause "Walking for the Fallen."
Lewis made it to Washington D.C. last Wednesday. He later returned to his Montana home after six months out on the highway and more than 3,400 miles on foot.
Throughout the journey, Lewis went as many as six days without a shower and spent most nights on his tent floor. He said it was easy getting used to having a bed again.
Lewis collected a little over $38,000 in donations. He said about $30,000 came from people compelled to hand him donations out on the highway. Lewis said rather than give it all to a national organization, he would choose organizations in each state that help veterans and donate the money he raised while he was there. Lewis kept track of how much money he raised in each of the 14 states.
