He began his journey in Virgina. He now calls San Francisco home. Before that it was Los Angeles, Austin, Nevada, Louisiana, Miami, West Palm Beach, North Carolina…and then some. This man has been around.

Before embarking on his trek around The United States, Sam proudly served his country as a member of The Navy.  Operation Desert Storm was his war.

I find it strange, yet uplifting and grateful, that I can tell when I am in the company of a Veteran on the streets.  “Sir, Thank You, Please” are just some of the words that are used during out conversations. Without fail.

“Life, God and His Mercy’s Grace” are but a few thing for which he is grateful for on this cold wet morning. “Live life. Live it for the fullest….Don’t take it for granted”. This man knows.
