Despite rain and a lot of humidity, thousands gathered in Dallas’ Reverchon Park to honor fallen service members and first responders. The Carry the Load Dallas Memorial March is a two day event that helps raise money for the organization’s Continuum of Care partners. The march began at 4:30 p.m., but the two day event also features live music, patriotic speeches, and stories honoring fallen heroes.
Carry the Load was founded by two former Navy SEALs as a way to restore the true meaning of Memorial Day and raise money to fund support programs for military, first responders, and their families. Several Dallas Police officers are participating in the march this Memorial Day weekend in remembrance of fallen family, friends, and co-workers. For more information visit, CarrytheLoad.org.
