Tractor traveler's road trip brings attention to important veteran issues

One man is traveling the nation in his tractor to bring attention to veteran issues.

CRAWFORD, Texas (KWTX) One man passing through Central Texas in the coming days will certainly be turning heads.

C. Ivan Stolzfus has been crisscrossing the country in his John Deere tractor, hauling a trailer that brings attention to an organization called Operation Second Chance.

The Maryland-based non-profit helps men and women who've been wounded in service, and their families, through free counseling, financial assistance, scholarships and more.

Stolzfus has taken his tractor and trailer across the nation in 2014 and 2016, and this his his third trip as part of Across America for Wounded Heroes.

He'll be making his way down Highway 185 stopping in Crawford next Wednesday evening at 6:30.
