OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — A man on a mowing mission across the world was back in Omaha for his specialty.

You may remember when Rodney Smith Jr. was here last year.

He mowed a 76-year-old gold-star wife's lawn.

Now, he's setting a new goal.

He's aiming to mow at least one veteran's yard in every state.

“All the veterans I talk to so far, this means alot to them, even if it's just mowing a lawn. Let's appreciate our vets while they're here,” said Smith Jr.

Smith Jr. says Nebraska is his 23rd state and hopes to travel to all 50 states for his good deed.
