A Maryland Marine completed his trek 5400 miles across the US when he reached Camp Pendleton’s 5th Marine Memorial.

He left September 11th last year and walking for him, was a way to create healing not only for himself, but for others across the country.

Johnathon Hancock served as a Marine for eight and a half years, and had deployed 7 times. In 2009, he left the Corps and hit a low-point and almost took his own life.

“I’m one of the guys that didn’t do so hot, so instead of wallowing in self-despair, I decided to pick myself up and try this new thing. And I decided that I would walk across the country and I visit with everybody from 2nd Battalion, 4th Marines.”

He walked 30 miles a day while carrying a 70-pound rucksack.
