Iraq War Veteran Troy Yocum is hiking 7,000 miles across America, banging his drum and sounding the call for $5 million to help military families in need. With his wife Mareike and Emmie the SuperDog by his side, they took their first step of his 16-month quest on April 17, 2010. Now they have completed the western leg of the journey, all the way from Kentucky to California and have walked back east to Mississippi - soon to arrive in Alabama. Funds raised are handled through The Wish Upon a Hero Foundation, a 501(c)(3) charity that is supporting Troy and his hike across America. Together we will help raise awareness and money for military families. To receive help from our efforts, post your wish up on
