Captain America is on his way, Boise. No, not the 3-D superhero movie, which opened on July 22 and is still playing at regional cineplexes. Rather the real Captain America is on his way. When he's not in disguise, he's better known as Allen Mullins.
Mullins, 29, is not promoting the movie or comic book. Instead, he's walking cross-country to raise awareness about military veterans. He's been walking since January 2009, and so far he has visited 36 state capitals. Mullins left Helena, Mont., late Friday and he's on his way to Boise (a 550 mile trip). Mullins is traveling alone, usually eats at community kitchens or churches and stays in hostels or the occasional motel.
