Hiking for Heroes stops in Tucson

By Christina Myers. CREATED Jul 27, 2014
TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - One man walking across the country to honor our men and women who have died in the war since September 11th made a stop in Tucson today.
 
Mike Viti is a hero himself who served in the Army. Now he's on a trek of over 71-hundred kilometers, one for each soldier killed in action in the Global War on Terror. 
 
"Honor the individual legacies that they leave behind and honor and pay homage to the way those men and women lived, and within that, honor the Gold Star families who are left behind and rally support for them."
 

Viti said he hopes his journey reminds people to remember the fallen soldiers and their families in small ways every day.
