After serving in the military, William Shuttleworth moved to a career in education, working as a special needs teacher and as an administrator. July 22, 2019.

It was for the two veterans who commit suicide every hour.

It was for the hundreds of veterans who are homeless, for those who struggle with finances and health care needs, and for those who feel underrepresented in Congress.

That’s what led William Shuttleworth, with only two sets of clothes, a sleeping bag and a few sundries in his backpack, to leave his Massachusetts home on May 15 to walk across the country.
