ROCKINGHAM COUNTY, Va. (WHSV) -- You may have seen two men walking along Rt. 11 carrying flags Wednesday.
The two marines were walking to support a cause close to their hearts.
So far, Adam Shatarsky and Chris Senopole have walked 2,500 miles to support the Wounded Warrior Project.
“We were getting stopped twenty times a day on the freeway, it was ridiculous,” said Shatarsky.
They said what was most surprising was how much the nation has rallied behind them.
“Strangers have bent over backward for us, just knowing that we are carrying an American flag and a Marine Corp flag and I am humbled by this everyday,” said Shatarsky.
Their walk started in early June and was inspired by several friends wounded in combat.
With only a few weeks left in their journey, these men said you don't have to be Captain America to make a difference.
"We are kind of out here every day just grinding it out and it really hasn't hit us what exactly it is we have created. I guess it is going to hit once I sit on a couch after this is done and go, what did we just do?" said Shatarsky.
They have raised more than $50,000 for the Wounded Warrior Project.
