After his last deployment, Cpl. Cory Smith wanted to get back home to his baby girl as well as generate support for post-combat troops, so he ran from Georgia to Indiana.
HLN's Robin Meade talks to the "Running Ranger" about his emotional journey.
Today, Cpl. Smith is continuing to serve as an uplifting example for military vets. He started a new job in April. He is still volunteering with Gallant Few and hasn't stopped hugging his beautiful daughter.
You can see the encore presentation of Robin Meade's Stories of Courage special, Saturday and Sunday, July 7 and 8 at 2 p.m. ET.
