Two former Marines are walking across the United States in hopes of raising funds and awareness for the Wounded Warrior Project.

That's a program that provides services to severely injured service members during the transition from active duty to civilian life.

The Marines traveled through Lawton on Monday, but started their journey on June 15th from Camp Pendelton in San Diego.

Chris Senopole says their goal is to make it to Washington, D.C. by October.

He says they want to make sure people across the U.S. know wounded soldiers need help after making a huge sacrifice to this country.

Senopole says he also hopes their journey will inspire others to help.

Chris Senopole says, "Just take the step and I don't mean that as a pun or anything. It's literally just, if it strikes at home with you and you feel like you can make a difference, small or large, I'm not asking you to walk across America for your cause but it's, you can do a lot more then you think you can."
