Troy Started This Walk.
In 2010 Troy decided to hike across America to bring awareness to veteran suicide. During this 7980 mile hike that took over 16 months Troy was able to help America see the importance of veteran’s health to our nation and those it affects.
Troy was inspired by his grandfather who had fought in World War II and took his own life when Troy was just a toddler. Troy was also affected by suicide when one of his close friends took his own life when he returned home from duty, Troy was deployed during this time. He also found inspiration in his friend Justin Fitch who passed away from cancer. Justin went down fighting and had inspired Troy with his story. Learn more about Justin here.
Troy made it his mission to help veterans and their families through his non-profit and in his own personal life.
Sadly, we lost Troy to COVID complications on January 4, 2022. Our walking warrior passed away while envisioning a better mission for Warrior Battalion and those we serve. We will never forget you Troy, and we will continue in your footsteps as you walked for veterans and their families, so shall we.
