Hike Hero on stage - WDRB videoA National Guard veteran who walked more than 7,000 miles to raise money for military families returned home to a hero’s welcome in Louisville, Ky.

Troy Yocum, 32, said he started the Hike for Heroes after hearing from a veteran buddy that he was depressed because he’d lost his a job and home after deployment.

The walk, which he undertook with his wife and dog, raised $500,000 so far, for the Wish Upon a Hero Foundation.
