One of our mailboxholders, Melvin McCoy, is walking from Knoxville, TN. to Washington, D.C. to raise awareness of homeless and distressed veterans issues.
McCoy’s path will take him through Bristol, TN, Danville, VA and Richmond, VA before reaching Washington, D.C. using the MULE (Multi-purpose Uniaxial Litter Enginery).
He is hoping to raise money for Alpha-Omega Veterans Services. Alpha-Omega Veterans Services is located in Midtown Memphis on Madison Ave. They provide many services for veterans here in Memphis. Visit Alpha-Omega Veterans Services at the following web address: www.alphaomegaveterans.org/
