HINESVILLE, GA (WTOC) -

The Warrior's Walk that began last month at Fort Stewart will come to a dramatic conclusion Tuesday. 

Josh Hargis, an Army Ranger who lost both of his legs during combat operations in Afghanistan, is joining the walk on the last few miles to Fort Benning. 

You may remember Hargis from what's been called, "A Salute Seen Around the World," in which Hargis, who was thought to be unconscious, raised his arm in salute as his commanding officer awarded him the Purple Heart. 

Hargis' brother-in-law organized the Warrior's Walk to raise money for his medical expenses. The 222-mile walk began at Fort Stewart on Feb. 17. 

It will end on Tuesday at Fort Benning where Hargis was stationed with the Third Battalion, 75th Ranger Regiment. 

Hundreds of people are expected to line the streets to Fort Benning as Hargis and his brother-in-law complete the journey together.
