Hiking for Homeless Veterans

Jared Greeley has wanted to hike all 2,000 miles of the Appalachian Trail for most of his life. Tomorrow he'll take the first steps of that journey, but it will have an added significance. He'll be hiking to raise awareness of homeless veterans. Greeley who was based in Fort Bragg for four years made the decision while he was stationed in Iraq last year. WFAE's Lisa Miller spoke with Jared Greeley about his mission.
