After multiple deployments, Brendan O’Toole completed his final tour with the U.S. Marines in June of 2012. When he first returned home, he was in a mental state of mind similar to many of his brothers and sisters throughout the military. When he reached out for help, he was denied assistance from the Veterans Administration. O’Toole’s frustration reached a breaking point. A cross-country journey intended to make a difference was certainly looked upon as an ambitious dream of young wonderers; however, when O’Toole reached Dallas, TX, people started to believe it was possible. After a grueling year on the road Brendan completed his 3,600-mile run from Oceanside, CA to Portland, ME with a greater understanding of his country and himself.
