(MURFREESBORO) As we near the Memorial Day weekend, a grassroots effort by two veteran U.S. Navy SEALs are walking across America, because they felt like the nation had forgotten what Memorial Day was all about. The Carry The Load group walked through Murfreesboro along Broad Street on Friday (5/21/2021) and told NewsRadio WGNS . . .
The Goals of CARRY THE LOAD are
To raise awareness of those who sacrifice for us daily by providing Americans an active way to remember, honor and celebrate them.
To raise funds to be distributed to non-profit partners who provide healing services for the mind, body and soul of our warriors.
To inspire patriotism in our youth by educating them about the American flag and the sacrifices made to honor it.
Carry The Load has turned into a worldwide movement to honor our nation’s heroes and make Memorial Day matter again. Price is FREE, and it will take approximately an hour and a half of your time to say THANK YOU for keeping America free!
