“We have a niche population, a subculture of people who are sacrificing their lives for us. And it seems to me that the rest of the country is oblivious,” he said. “That hurts me. That’s a disconnect hard to bridge.”
That from Del Mar's John Cote who is walking across America to raise awareness of our nation's military as well as funds for the Fisher House foundation which builds rest homes for injured service members and their families to use during treatment.
Cote began his 2,140 mile journey on April 1st and is on schedule to complete it at Fort Benning, Georgia on Wednesday.
Cote has raised $20,000 thus far. The Fisher House website is here. Give as the spirit moves you.
