A two-man crew is traveling along the Mississippi River in a riverboat to bring national attention to veteran issues.  Howard Jenkins, a veteran and President of 'Vet-to-Vet' is making the trip down the river with the hopes of drawing national attention to an organization he founded called, 'Veteran's Treatment Corp.'  It is a program created to help veterans who have hit a bumpy patch in life after returning home from war.  Jenkins is helping them by helping them get a second chance.  Jenkins said, they started their trip in St. Paul, Minnesota at the end of July.  Their next stop is New Orleans.
