Long Way Home

Kate MacEachern may not be part of the Canadian military anymore, but she's still marching for her comrades.

MacEachern is doing her second charity walk in as many years...last year she raised $20,000 in support of physical rehabilitation for injured veterans.

This year she is rasing money and awareness for the cause of PTSD - or post traumatic stress disorder.

The difference is, MacEachern - a trained tank driver - is no longer employed by the Canadian Forces herself.
