How do you normally spend this three-day weekend? Well, for Matthew he spends it a different way, in hopes to bring more awareness to the true meaning of how we should be remembering this very day.
Matthew Viamontes, is a Unites States Marine Veteran, and is walking from Marquette, Mi to Munising, Mi today, to honor the sacrifices made for our freedom. This is his second time doing this walk to raise awareness for the struggles that our veterans face.
His wife Sherri Viamontes says ” it is my hope that his story and his sacrifice can be spread today, so that more people hear about it, and know how important this is.”
He started around 6am this morning, he is carrying the United States flag by his side. He has received numerous honks from passing vehicles to show their support. He wanted to sacrifice today, rather than do the typical barbecue and party that most Americans do on this three-day weekend.
