Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) -- On a day filled with people honoring veterans and proudly waving the red, white and blue, one North Dakota man is taking it a step further one step at a time.
Tom Selleys is on a walk, a walk to honor our country's veterans, the one's who've made it back, like himself, and the ones who've paid the ultimate sacrifice.
Tom Selleys: “Somebody has to do it, because they gave so much that we might be free.”
Selleys served in World War II on the Pacific Front, only 16 when he enlisted. He grinded the miles out on an 18-wheeler for many years, now he's grinding them out with his feet; reflecting with every step.
Selleys: “I remember buddies, times that we had together and they're not many of them left because time has caught up to us.”
This is year number two of Selleys' walk down Highway 81; it's more than 30-miles to his final destination. Just one more way to honor the bravest America has to offer.
Selleys: “I just think this is their day and if I can contribute to that, then that's why I am here.”
This veterans' journey will end on Monday in Fort Abercrombie where he'll close the generational gap to honor our service men and women one more time.
Tune in to WDAY on Monday for the end to Selley's journey.
