One soldier's march for peace

Gunnar Swanson, an Iraqi war vet, began a march of over 1,000 miles from Texas to Minnesota on July 4. The Soldier's March for Peace is part of a fundraising event for an organization called War Kids Relief, which aims to help war-affected children overseas "realize new possibilities for their lives." Gunnar is expected to arrive in Northfield, Minn., where War Kids Relief is based, around the middle of September.
