VA and “Carry the Load” Team up to Honor the Fallen

This year, the VA’s National Cemetery Administration is partnering with “Carry the Load” with the goal of honoring veterans and restoring the true meaning of Memorial Day. Carry The Load, an organization dedicated to remembering the fallen, established three marching routes that thousands of participants will take as they relay toward Dallas, Texas, from April 25 through May 22. The route will cover over 11,000 miles, with stops at 26 VA National Cemeteries in 17 states. In conjunction with the arrival of Carry the Load and its relay teams, each national cemetery along the route will unveil a commemorative “Tribute to the Fallen” plaque honoring veterans and Gold Star families.
