C. Ivan Stoltzfus dreamed of a cross country adventure on an old John Deere tractor to see the United States of America and to raise funds for a special mission.


A 1948 John Deere Model A will serve in 2019 as the great machine for the long journey as it did in 2016 and 2014. This tractor certainly has a unique look!


The goal of the endeavor is to bring recognition and support for the many heroes of the USA — hurting men and women who sacrificed of themselves for our nation's freedom.


Each day, OSC receives requests from veterans at risk of losing their homes or families reaching out for assistance with groceries and other daily necessities. Funds raised during this journey will help further OSC’s mission.




*Amount raised represents total of electronic transactions, check, and cash contributions to the Across America for Wounded Heroes.



We are thankful for our sponsors who made this trip possible.
