Masked veteran plans to run across Iowa

Posted: Updated:

An Iowa veteran is spreading the word about post-traumatic stress in a unique way.

He's running across the entire state, wearing a military gas mask.

Some people are calling him the "masked veteran."

For the past six months, he's been training for the run set for September.

He'll cover more than 300 miles in ten days.

He says the mask represents the struggle many veterans face every day.

He's part of team Fidelis, a nationwide group working to end veteran suicide
