Photo caption: Kenyon Eastin has served his country while in the Navy and he realized that he has never really had a chance to see the country he loved so much. This Utah native flew to New Jersey and on March 12 started a walk across the United States so that he would have an opportunity to really see what this country had to offer. Photo by Sandy Zabokrtsky/Fairbury Journal News

For one man from Utah the old saying join the Navy and see the world, held a certain appeal. He joined the Navy and saw some of the world but at 41 he realized that he hadnt really seen the most important part of the world, the United States.
