Two Navy veterans are hitting the road on their bicycles to help their fellow veterans. The two veterans of the U.S. Navy hope to bring attention to and eventually help raise funds for homeless veterans and student veterans.
John McCall and Steven Shoots are Navy veterans who served together. Now, together once again, they are on a mission to serve other veterans. McCall and Shoots are riding their bicycles along the east coast and filming a documentary of their journey.
The pair started their journey in Charlotte, North Carolina and will bike south to Key West, Florida. From Key West, they are sailing back up the east coast to Norfolk, Virginia. Then, they ride back south from Norfolk to Charlotte.
"I knew I had to put a cause behind it if i was doing something that big," said John McCall. "And decided to try to help all the student veterans and homeless veterans."
Complete strangers have helped out... taking in the pair on their journey.
"Everybody is very open to veterans even more receptive to our cause so that's been really cool," said Steven Shoots. "All the people that we've encountered."
"It's really great after a long day to get in have someone smile," added McCall. "Hey we really like what you're doing, come here stay at my place, use my shower, wash your clothes things like that."You can follow along with the two Navy Veterans on their trek and offer support and words of encouragement by visiting their Veteran Voices Heard Facebook Community Page.
