Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - The Fourth of July means freedom for so many Americans. But one former Marine remains in a Mexican jail, accused of crossing into the country with several guns.

Friday, another former Marine is setting off on a 100 mile journey to free Andrew Tahmooressi.

CBS News 8's Shannon Handy files the above video report from the border with more on "The Walking Man's" mission.

Tahmooressi has been jailed in Mexico since March 31 on a weapons charge. He says he accidentally crossed the border with three guns that were legally registered to him.

Tahmooressi’s next court date is scheduled for July 9.
