Soldier Walks 140 Miles For Fallen Navy Seal

Posted: Updated:

(LEX 18) A Kentucky Air National Guard soldier is walking from Louisville to Morehead to honor his fallen friend.

Captain Nathan Tingle started to feel the ache in his bones as he fought his way up Highway 60 in Versailles on Tuesday.

He said that his knees needed ice. He said it was worth it.

Captain Tingle is walking to honor Navy Seal Collin Thomas, who died in action while in Afghanistan in 2010.

He started the journey from Louisville on Sunday afternoon at the bar where he last saw Thomas.

During the walk, he has had a lot of time to reminisce.

“A reflective period, kind of cathartic moment too, gives me some time on the road to just kind of clear my thoughts,” said Captain Tingle.

He will end his trip in Morehead where his fallen friend’s sister is hosting an annual golf scramble.  

During his trip, people will walk with Captain Tingle. They shared their stories and he shared the story of Navy Seal Collin Thomas, the man he is walking 140 miles for.
