Man wants to create a day to honor veterans and first responders
EDMOND, Okla. — Folks in Edmond are probably still talking about what they saw going down one of that’s city’s busy streets.
It was a red, white and blue procession led by one man on a cross-country mission.
The man is walking to the Oklahoma State Capitol and every other one in the nation. He wants you to get behind his march.
His name is Lance Robinson, a marine veteran. Today he is walking the streets of Edmond with first responders.
The kind of people he wants honored on one special day. Robinson wants a new day recognized called Brother to Brother day; a time to honor active duty veterans, police, firefighters and EMTs together as one.
He wants the day to be on September 10th, the day before 9/11.
The stretch of his walk honors the 343 Firefighters killed in 9/11. He posts a flag every mile in each fighters honor.
Those walking with him feel the footsteps of the fallen.
He says he is doing it for his comrades and for the young people who reach out to him.
Robinson will be at the Wal-Mart in Chandler this weekend if you would like to visit with him and get involved in his campaign.
