Today marks three years since the deadly massacre at Fort Hood where 13 people lost their lives and 31 others were injuried.
One soldier who survived the shootings hit the road last week for a 5-day, 80-mile run to the state capitol.
It's all part of his fight to make sure no one forgets about the victims who are still struggling with what happened.
"During this time of the year, I really get choked up, and my body is hurting, my mind is weary." said Christopher Royal whose a survived the Fort Hood shooting.
Officer Royal is expected to finish his 80-mile journey sometime today in Austin.
