Kyle McCullough, a former Green Beret who is in the process of re-enlisting, is visiting businesses in The Dalles and Hood River to gain donations for his 198-mile walk from Dufur to Seaside on the Oregon coast next week to raise money for the Gorge Heroes Club. That’s the local organization that supports military members in all branches with local connections who are deployed overseas. 28-year-old McCullough has a personal connection. His younger brother is USMC 1st Lt. Turf McCullough, who is currently serving in Afghanistan.
McCulloch says he’s raised more than $1200 so far, but is happy to accept more
For listeners who’d like to help, he has a simple message
Kyle McCulloch will start walking from his home in Dufur at 2 a.m. Sunday morning. He’ll be passing through The Dalles Sunday morning between 7 and 8 a.m.
