The United States Army may be turning away qualified recruits because of its new tattoo policy. Under the new regulations, tattoos are banned on the head, face, neck, wrists, hands or fingers. Soldiers are prohibited from exceeding four visible tattoos below the elbow or knee. In addition, sleeve tattoos before the elbow or knee are banned.
The second annual Wounded Walk kicks off from New York City on April 12. This year, Marine veteran Ross Delafield will walk to Washington, D.C., to raise awareness for wounded veterans.
Two Marines, six weeks, 2,700 miles. Their mission? To walk from Camp Pendleton in California all the way to the nation's capital in Washington, D.C. All of it is what Marine veterans Adam Shatarsky and Chris Senopol are calling The Wounded Walk 2013, an effort to raise awareness for The Wounded Warrior Project.
