RICHFIELD, Minn. - Some people say the toughest basttles soldiers fight don't begin until after they come home.

The Department of Veteran's Affairs says 23 service members commit suicide every day.

On Friday, in an effort to bring awareness and raise funds to address the issue, a handful of Minnesota combat veterans embarked on a 23-mile march, with their ruck sacks, to honor their fallen brothers and sisters.
