A Texoma man will soon make a 4,000-mile trip to honor veterans.
Randy Duckworth, a Navy veteran, will be traveling from Nocona to Virginia Beach, Va. and then back on his motorcycle.
Most of the stops on his trips will be at Veterans of Foreign Wars posts and businesses that support veterans.
Duckworth said he felt like this was something he needed to do and wanted to honor those who have and continue to serve.
“I thank God every day for the veterans we have. I spent 25 years, but it’s not about me,” Duckworth said. “It’s about trying to bring awareness to our veterans in the past too. Some of them didn’t get the welcome home like a lot of them did.”.
Duckworth’s trip will start on Aug. 3 from the Nocona Military Heritage Plaza and he is scheduled to return on Aug. 29.
