A Soldier and His Dog Hike for Heroes


Wolf cheers, "Go Emmie & Troy!"

With his dog "Emmie" by his side, Troy Yocum, an Iraq War Veteran, is hiking 7,000 miles across America banging his drum as part of Hike for Heroes in an effort to raise $5 million to help military families in need.


Troy and Emmie, the FiveSibes and their Hu-family proudly support you and applaud you in your efforts for this great cause! You definitely do not walk alone! We are with you each and every step of the way!


Please watch the following video to see his hike.



  1. What a great thing to do. I hope that he is able to raise a lot of money. We are doing the 2 Million Dog walk in a few weeks here. :)

  2. Very cool! Thanks for sharing! So heartwarming when humans and animals join together to help those less fortunate. Good luck to Troy and Emmie and paws crossed they meet their fund raising goal!


  3. I love when the canine and human spirits connect and join causes. Just pawsitively amazing.
