Interview with Tom Stone
"The Man Who Walked Around The World".

This interview with Tom Stone was recorded in April of 1997 in Yogyakarta, Indonesia on the island of Java. Tom was at that point five years into a walk around the world that began in Pomfert, Vermont.

Several years after returning home, Tom re-enlisted in military service to serve as a medic in Afghanistan. During his third tour in March of 2006, Tom was fatally wounded by "friendly fire".
