Two British members of a team that completed an epic walk across the United States have been speaking to Forces News about how the experience has helped them to deal with some of their mental health issues.
The 'Walk of America' was a fundraising expedition for the charity Walking With the Wounded, and saw six wounded veterans - three British and three Americans - walking 1,000 miles in 12 weeks from the West to East coast.
Jonny Burns and Kev Carr were part of the British contingent and returned to the UK in September.
Both men are residents at a specialist veterans support centre which aids single veterans who are homeless.
Jonny Burns had been a soldier with the Royal Anglian Regiment for eight years and had served in Germany and Cyprus.
He said even his experience in the infantry left him unprepared for the start of the expedition in California back in June:
"The first week you had the aches, the blisters, because you were literally doing 20 miles on concrete in 110 degree heat."
