Captain America visits Colfax
October 22, 2020
COLFAX-Captain America was strolling through town Nov. 22, adorned with shield and a POW flag on his bag.
Under the mask, however, wasn't Steve Rogers of Brooklyn, it was Allen Mullins of Dalton, Georgia. Mullins was passing through on a cross-country walk to raise awareness for veterans and firefighters.
"Nice guy," said Roger Myers of LaCrosse. "Got a great idea."
Mullins stayed with Myers during his two night layover in LaCrosse. Myers and his wife are co-founders of W.H.E.A.T., an organization that collects items and sends them to American troops, a cause similar to Mullins'.
