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.
