PLAINFIELD, Ind. — A veteran is walking across the country to raise awareness about PTSD.

Steve Meyers is a U.S. Army veteran who suffers from PTSD. He wants people to know that help is out there.

On February 15, Meyers started his 6,000 mile walk across the country to start a conversation about post traumatic stress.

On Tuesday, Meyers spoke with an audience in Plainfield, sharing his message of hope and giving us an update on his journey. 

“The number one thing I want them to know is that there’s help out there, and to have hope and don’t give up,” Meyers said.
