On a mission

South Boston News
Downtown South Hill welcomed a special visitor last week as Mac McQuown, a 50-year-old Marine, passed through on a mission to walk to all the state capitals in the U.S. He is walking to draw attention to veterans’ causes and raise money for Project F.O.O.T (Families Of Our Troops), which helps homeless veterans and military families. Mac started his journey on Sept. 11, in Stafford, his home. On his journey, he usually walks 8-15 miles a day, only resting on Sundays so his body has a chance to recoup. He has been sleeping at firehouses each night. He drew a bit of attention in town with a fire truck and police car escort.
