A Walker County veteran will travel across the country to honor Chattanooga’s Fallen Five. On the two-year anniversary of the terrorist attack, the Air Force veteran will begin his journey from Chattanooga to San Francisco.
While on the road, Joshua Kapellusch hopes to remind the nation of the fallen heroes and their sacrifice. He will travel 5,000 miles in five days. It's in honor of the five fallen heroes from the Chattanooga terrorist attack.
With the flip of a switch, Kapellusch is ready to drive his ‘Blazer of Glory’ across country.
“Five different types of fuels, five days, to honor the Fallen Five,” said Joshua Kapellusch.
The names of Chattanooga’s Fallen Five are written across the car. It's Josh's way of making sure the Sailor and four Marines are never forgotten.
“It is about the families, and the community. Chattanooga was impacted, and the community. It is important that we remember all of that and we don't forget,” said Kapellusch.
It’s an idea that came to the Air Force veteran days following the July 2015 attacks.
