A Warrior’s Walk | Cheyenne Marine Walking the US for Veterans&Rights

You can support Eddie’s walk here:

Eddie Gray is an American hero.

He is a Cheyenne Marine veteran. Eddie began walking the perimeter states of the U.S. in 2008, to bring to light issues facing our veterans. As of this writing, he has walked over 8,000 miles and counting with a 100lb military pack on his back. He visits local politicians and troops at capitols and military bases to discuss how we can take better care of our nation’s veterans.

Not only is Eddie’s walk beneficial by bringing awareness to veterans’ causes, it is also cathartic for him as a meditative journey. He is from the Northern Cheyenne tribe in Montana, which claims a proud ancestry of warriors–throughout the entire history of our country. Being a warrior is unquestionably in Eddie’s blood.

This short documentary examines many aspects of his uniquely heroic odyssey.

  1. Not only have so-called “Native Americans” been in every US war, but they were warring among each other before and after Columbus was the first Western European to discover America (preceded by the Vikings). But no one really cares who was here first because even the red man stole land from others. Live by the sword, die by the sword, Tonto.

  2. Eddie came through Falls Church Virginia today. Be safe, sir.
