Fort Hood families walk to support their soldiers

The families hope to walk far enough to equal 10 round trips from Fort Hood to Kuwait.

Families of the 3rd Armored Brigade Combat Team ("Greywolf") are walking for their warriors.

When their soldiers deployed to Kuwait in March, parents, siblings wives and husbands began tracking how many miles they walked, swam and biked.

In the last three months, they've traveled nearly 38,000 miles total. By the time their soldiers return, the families hope to have moved 140,000 miles -- which is the equivalent of roughly 10 round trips from Fort Hood to Kuwait.

The soldiers will return to post later in 2017.
