Disabled Veteran Crosses Country, Raising Awareness

Lisa Groves has seven teddy bears piled on the passenger seat of her Jeep Compass with West Virginia license plates.

There's a worn Bible laying on the dashboard, an American flag adhered with gold duct tape to the antenna and a blue and white handicapped parking tag hanging from the rear-view mirror.

The 50-year-old in the driver's seat is a disabled U.S. Army veteran. She made it to Alaska last week after departing from her home state on June 2. Her road trip comes with a mission: help fellow veterans in need. Her shirt reads, "As God my guide and by my side I'm driving to 49 U.S. States (Alaska)-Canada-Mexico For a No Veteran Left Behind Veteran's Awareness Drive."

The rest of the story is here.
