Hi all,

I've been following these two Iraq war veterans and their attempt to walk from Milwaukee to Los Angeles to raise awareness for veterans' issues.  They are mostly walking on well-developed roads, and might be committed to military-style packs.  They have many needs, but I though maybe this group could help with specific types of needs which this lovely group might easily help with.  Namely, they need gear and maybe even tips about walking long distances from those experienced in doing so.

To read about their trip and hopes go here:
They have a list of needed gear here:

I'm not sure how fixed their needs are, and I imagine that it might be possible to suggest things to them which they might benefit from.  They also might benefit from advice, though I don't presume. 

I put it out there for this group to consider.
