    A year ago, a Mid-Michigan man hooked two mules to a wagon and headed for Oklahoma. Before he arrived, he was involved in a horrible accident. Now he's preparing to finish the trip.

OKLAHOMA (WJRT) - (07/05/14) - It's a journey we've been following for more than a year.

We're happy to share that an Owosso man finally reached his goal.  

Charlie Peters posted a picture on his Facebook page Saturday morning showing him kneeling in front of his father's grave in Oklahoma.

Peters set out on this journey in the spring of 2013, using a wagon and his two prized mules.

His goal was to see his father's grave and thank veterans for their service along the way.

While in Missouri last year, he got into an accident. That killed both of his mules, and Peters learned he had cancer.

Last month, he set out to finish what he started and concluded his journey this Fourth of July weekend.
