(WHEC) -- Where's William?
News10NBC has been following the journey of a military veteran walking across America. William Shuttleworth is on a mission to bring awareness to mental health issues facing our country’s vets by walking from coast to coast.
The 72-year-old left from his Newburyport, Massachusetts, home on May 15 and plans to walk all the way to California.
His journey brought him to Canandaigua back on Memorial Day. On his journey, Shuttleworth is stopping at VFW posts and local military sites to visit vets.
He was a mental health clinician for returning prisoners of war [POWs] and continues to fight for the mental health of our veterans.
Right now, Shuttleworth is in Kansas.
You can track his progress through his website here.
