Day 13- Captain America

I had to chase this guy down today. I got a kick out of asking people, "Have you seen a guy dressed up like Captain America?"

Allen Mullins, 28, walks east on E. Kearney St. dressed as Captain America on his way to Jefferson City from Austin, Tx. on Monday, March 21, 2011. Mullins, originally from Dalton, Ga., is walking to every state capital in the contiguous United Sates to raise awareness for homeless veterans. Since January 2010 he has been to 27 capitals. Mullins is not a veteran himself, but said 33 percent of the U.S. homeless population has served. "In order to get the attention necessary to make it work, you have to go beyond your comfort zone," he said. "I had to become homeless." Donations can be sent to the Veterans of Foreign Wars at 3800 West Oak St. Palestine, TX 75802 or call 903-723-8120.
