The man behind the wheel of the antique John Deere is C. Ivan Stoltzfus. His journey stopped in Altoona, PA today.
The Johnabilt edged out onto the sand and down the beach towards the waves! It stopped just short of the water, and Granddaughters Ellie and Emily ceremoniously scooped up a jar of ocean water and a jar of sand. This was a significant act as Ivan had planned to take a jar of Atlantic Ocean water and sand on his travels to the Pacific Ocean, at which time he will collect a jar of Pacific Ocean water and sand. His hope is to then pour these jars together- signifying the coming together of America - from sea to sea- for our Wounded American Heroes!
So now we have begun, going across America for Wounded Heroes, changing lives one mile at a time!
