McQuown’s mission in this personal endeavor is, “to bring an overdue and well deserved light upon all veterans young and old, male & female, from both past & current conflicts; to also keep in our prayers and bring awareness to all veterans whom ever have been or currently are a POW and/or MIA.”

McQuown started his walk on September 11, 2011 in Stafford, Virginia. He went north from there to Ground Zero in New York and then headed south to Florida. He said today he is currently en route to Atlanta, then Nashville, back south to Alabama and then west to California before turning back to the east coast.
