Combat Veteran Marches to Raise Money for Wounded Comrades.

Quote from the above link and article by Lindsey Burnworth

“I have a lot of good friends that were hurt in Afghanistan or Iraq, so whenever I want to quit or whatever, I kinda think about them and think about regardless of how much I’m hurting, how much easier I have it than some of these guys that have lost limbs, and you know, can’t walk,” Kuhel said.

One of the greatest ways to get relief from symptoms of anxiety and depression is to help others.  In this case, 23 year-old former Marine, Justin Kuhel, is walking 400 miles from Columbus, Ohio to Arlington National Cemetery to benefit the Wounded Warrior’s Project.  Justin is making a big difference for others, while raising awareness for fellow combat veterans, and getting some excellent physical exercise along the way.  I have found that doing something larger than yourself is healing.  Keeping up a regular exercise regimen is also good for the soul.
