ARDMORE, OK -- A veteran making his way through Oklahoma and Texas in honor of fallen firefighters was escorted through Ardmore Thursday.

Marine Veteran Lance Robinson says he's walking 343 miles in honor of the 343 fallen firefighters of 9/11.

His journey started in Tulsa on September 11th, and he expects to arrive in Dallas on October 30 but he says his journey won't end there.

Robinson says, "I'm on an endeavor to cross America. It's called Honor Hike Across America. The goal is to visit all 48 state capitals."

Robinson says from Dallas, he plans to hike to Austin the 32nd state capital he's visited so far.
