Veteran walks 30 miles carrying an American flag

A local veteran marched 30 miles to honor the men and women serving.

Kerrick Caldwell was responding to NFL players taking a knee during the national anthem.

He said he fought for the right to free speech. Friday, he used that right too. He told us he's seen oppression in third-world countries. He marched to remind people how lucky they are to live in America. 

"We live in the greatest nation in the world and it's been paved through the blood, sweat and tears and deaths of very good people. It's okay to be proud of that. It's alright," said Caldwell.

Caldwell left from Cambridge Springs.

His tour wrapped up at the Bicentennial Tower.  

That's where he said he met his children and had a discussion about the first amendment.
