Wounded Warrior walk ends at Ft. Benning

Posted: Updated:
FORT BENNING, GA (WTVM) -

A two-week, 222 mile journey ended Tuesday morning at the National Infantry Museum.

Army Sergeant Josh Hargis and his wife Taylor were there for the final leg of the walk.

It started at Fort Stewart, Ga. last month.

You might remember Hargis as the Fort Benning ranger who lost both legs in an attack in Afghanistan, but still managed to salute his superior during a Purple Heart ceremony.

"It's been an adventure," said walk organizer Sergeant Patrick Griffith. "I mean, we started February 17. Started, worst day was the first day. We did 21 miles straight and that hurt us pretty good. But everybody fought all the way through and got all the way to the end."

Sgt. Griffith organized the walk in a show of solidarity for Hargis, his brother-in-law.

Eleven people did the entire 222 miles. They were joined by dozens of supporters this morning.
