Tom L'Italien's Cross-country Ride For Veterans Will End At City Hall Plaza!
Please join us to welcome Tom L'Italien Sunday, August 11th at noon on the steps of City Hall.

Tom L'Italien is pedaling his 10-speed bicycle across America, motivated by a burning desire to help veterans while answering to a higher power.

A Salem native who grew up in Peabody, L'Italien said he was touched by the Holy Spirit in early June, prompting him to embark on a 2,700-mile journey that is scheduled to end in Lynn on August 11.

When he arrives he will be greeted by an enthusiastic group of local veterans, residents and public officials, led by Mayor Judith Flanagan Kennedy, whom L'Italien credits with being supportive of his venture from the outset.

"We are thrilled that Mr. L'Italien has chosen to end this milestone journey in our city," Kennedy said, "and we want to make sure the crowd that welcomes him is reflective of the incredible effort he is putting forth on behalf of veterans nationwide."

The primary goal of L'Italien's trip is to raise awareness of the growing problem of suicide among veterans. He is also raising money to help veterans' families dealing with the consequences of suicide, such as mortgage foreclosure and college tuition costs.

In 2012, 6,588 veterans committed suicide; as of July 21, 3,832 veterans and 201 active duty military personnel had taken their lives this year. It is estimated that 22 veterans commit suicide every day, according to a study conducted by the Department of Veteran Affairs.

While L'Italien is not a veteran, four of his brothers served in the military, so he witnessed first-hand the issues that veterans face, especially when returning from war.

"When my brother, Al, returned from Vietnam, I saw how the tragedies he experienced impacted and changed his life," L'Italien said. "Although he never talked about his experiences, we could see a big difference in him. I'm bicycling across the country to bring awareness to our responsibility to take better care of our veterans."

L'Italien sits on the board of directors of Team Veterans Foundation (TVF), which strives to bring awareness to the notion that "the first cost of freedom is supporting our veterans." TVF is raising funds to build medical facilities with surrounding homes to support veterans and their families. It also hopes to establish a national suicide hotline for veterans.

L'Italien, 63, a Peabody High graduate, is also bringing attention to an effort to construct the Statue of Responsibility, a proposed structure that would be dedicated to protecting our freedoms and promoting the principles of responsibility, specifically the responsibility citizens have to one another. The statue would be located on the West Coast, to balance the responsibility it symbolizes with the freedom signified by the Statue of Liberty in New York.

L'Italien left Flagstaff, Ariz., on June 21. Averaging 50-60 miles per day, he is scheduled to make stops in a total of more than a dozen other states, culminating with his arrival in Lynn on Day 52 of the trek. As of July 30, he was in Pennsylvania, with future stops scheduled in New York, Connecticut and Rhode Island. He is scheduled to reach Lowell on August 10 and ride from there to Lynn on the morning of August 11, arriving at City Hall at approximately noon.

Mayor Kennedy said the City will roll out the welcome mat for him, including providing a police escort from the city limits to City Hall.

"With such a large and active veterans population, it is especially meaningful for Mr. L'Italien's journey to culminate in our city," Kennedy said. "We certainly want to do everything in our power to express our sincere appreciation and shed light on his cause."

Please join us to welcome Tom L'Italien Sunday, August 11th at noon on the steps of City Hall.
