COUER D’ALENE, Idaho – An American hero and his trusted Labrador sidekick finished a 2,000-mile journey on foot Thursday, according to KXLY.

Ken Brock and his dog, Pam, met Brock’s son, Arek, in Couer D’Alene, Idaho after setting out from Florida February 1.

Brock was inspired by the Wounded Warrior Project and took on the trip without any physical preparation, KXLY reported.

Pam had her own modified stroller, decked out with American and Wounded Warrior flags. She walked with him as often as she could.
