    "I met a woman on day three who lost her husband, which hit me pretty hard. She came running out of her truck with tears in her eyes to hug us and let us know how important our cause is,” said Staff Sgt. Michael Beattie from Marinette, Wisconsin. “That is the exact reason why we are doing this, and that is to prevent other families from having to go through this. Knowing that Cass was still out there pushing had me feeling like I can't totally sit this one out. I still wanted to contribute to what we started as much as I can." Beattie and 1st Lt. Cody Cass from Marquette, Michigan, both from the Michigan National Guard, 107th Headquarters and Headquarters Company based out of Ishpeming, Michigan, walked 22 miles a day across the Upper Peninsula from May 13-26, 2017, in efforts to raise awareness to the 22 Veterans who take their own lives every day in the U.S. (Photo by Staff Sgt.
