Be ‘Weather Aware’: Winter Weather Advisory until 6 p.m. Monday

Army vet flips tire for 22 hours for suicide awareness

WINDSOR, Mo. — Friends and family spent Saturday encouraging a 26 year old Army veteran raising awareness about PTSD and suicide.

Friends and family members say Markus Burns started flipping a 300 pound tractor tire on Friday afternoon — with plans to stop Saturday afternoon after 22 hours.  His mother tells FOX4 that a fellow soldier he served with ended his life, and this has prompted Markus to help other veterans.
