U.S. Air Force Veteran plans 628 mile march Texas to Raise Awareness for Post Traumatic Stress
SPRING, TX – U.S. Air Force Security Police Veteran Ken Meyer was diagnosed with PTS (Post Traumatic Stress) in 2007. He is planning a march around south and central Texas to raise awareness for PTS.
“I decided to dedicate the march to the 19 men who lost their lives during Operation Red Wings on June 28, 2005, and the 22 veterans who lose the battle to PTS every day,” Meyer said.
Three years ago, Meyer and his wife began volunteering for the Lone Survivor Foundation. According to Meyer, they chose the foundation because of their dedication to help wounded service members and their families.
The “Never Quit March for Post Traumatic Stress (PTS) Awareness” will begin “at my VFW Post 4709, in Conroe and end at Crystal Beach in time for Texas Frog Fest 2016,” Meyer said. “All proceeds from fundraising will be donated to the Lone Survivor Foundation to help their mission to restore, empower, and renew hope for our wounded service members.”
Meyer’s march begins on April 16 at 10 a.m. Meyer says he has “planned stops at Texas A&M University, Austin, Ft. Hood/ Killeen, Midlothian, back down to Houston and ending up at Crystal Beach.”
