GOOD NEWS Army Vet Paddleboarding 3,500 Miles to Support Wounded Warriors
Josh Collins, a former U.S. Army Delta Force officer, knows the pain that many of our veterans are going through.
Collins was diagnosed with traumatic brain injury and post-traumatic stress disorder after serving in Bosnia, Afghanistan and Iraq.
Now, Collins is raising awareness and money for veterans by paddleboarding 3,500 miles from Corpus Christi, Texas, to New York City.
Phil Keating reported on "America's Newsroom" that the 20-year Army veteran has just rounded the Florida peninsula and will now head north along the east coast up to the Big Apple.
Keating said that Collins hopes his journey raises awareness about the brain issues facing veterans and the distressingly high suicide rate among the men and women who have served our country.
"The war officially is over. It doesn't mean that America can lose interest," Collins said. "The mission of recovery - I think we've learned as a nation - is just as important."
Collins hopes to raise $20 million or more through the Task Force Dagger Foundation, which provides assistance to wounded, ill or injured special operations members and their families.
