( – Paul Veneto, a retired flight attendant for United Airlines, is going to be walking 300 miles in honor of his colleagues who were killed on September 11, 2001. He said this journey, called Paulie’s Push, is going to protect the memory of his colleagues, whom he referred to as “great American heroes” lives on.

As part of his annual journey that will take over a month to complete, Veneto is going to walk 300 miles from New Jersey to western Pennsylvania while pushing an airline beverage cart. According to Fox News, he noted the flight crews were the “first first responders” on that day. He added that to him the beverage was emblematic and “sacred.”

This is the third one of Veneto’s walks and he has already planned the fourth one which will retrace the journeys of the four domestic airline flights that had been hijacked on that day. On Monday, August 14, Veneto was set to leave Newark Liberty International Airport and he is hoping to arrive in Shanksville, Pennsylvania by September 11. These are the terminal points that United Airlines Flight 93 had been flying between on the day of the attack.

The flight departed from Newark and was carrying 37 passengers. There were also seven crew members who are believed to have put up a great battle in order to try and regain control of the airplane after the hijackers killed one of the people on the plane and took control of the plane from the pilots. The plane eventually took a nosedive close to Shanksville at around an hour and 20 minutes after its departure.
