NORMAL--Two local veterans turned cross country cyclists are home after raising awareness for fellow soldiers across the nation.
It's called the "Sea to Shining sea tour," and its 3,800 miles.
Veterans Andrew Jansen and John Malkin, traveled that distance on their bikes across America.
"I knew if I could get out there, I could do my job better," said Jansen. "My job is to serve veterans."
The pair began their cross country journey in May.
To help disabled service members like themselves.
"My mission was to help veterans if I could and to show them especially guys with PTSD and panic disorder they don't' have to be afraid."
