Team Long Road Passes Through Area on Trek Across Country

A couple veterans known as Team Long Road have made their way through Dubuque, Delaware and Buchanan counties this week.

They’re on a cross-country journey across America – from Boston, Massachusetts to Newport, Oregon – in support of America’s Missing and Killed in Action soldiers.

Justin “JD” LeHew and Coleman “Rocky” Kinzer started their journey back on June 6th.

JD and Rocky are both retired from the U.S. Marine Corps. They say taking this journey has been an amazing experience.

The guys spent the night in Dyersville, Manchester and Independence as they’ve walked across the area, taking Historic Route 20 for the entire stretch – not only in Iowa, but across the country. They’re about halfway through their trip, with hopes to be back home by Christmas.
