POMONA, Calif. (AP) — A San Diego man who has been crossing the country for seven years collecting signatures honoring victims of the Sept. 11 attacks says he's finally in the home stretch.
The San Gabriel Valley Tribune reported Sunday that Armand Young has more than 600,000 signatures.
Young, recognizable by the raft of American flags he carries with him, says he hopes to get last few hundred thousand after he hits Los Angeles later this week.
Then it's on to Santa Monica, where he began his trek across the country and back seven years ago. He's had to periodically interrupt it to return to work.
Over the years he says he's been chased by a bear in Utah, dodged a tornado in Nebraska and met countless new friends along the way.
