Honoring Vets: Carry The Load partners with VA’s national cemeteries

Posted on Donna Kee

MARION VETERANS AFFAIRS MEDICAL CENTER: The Carry The Load team stopped at Culpeper National Cemetery in Virginia May 10. One of the team members was Andrew DeLeon, a Marine Corps Veteran who is a current Air Force Reservist and firefighter in Dallas, Texas. He said the relay hits home because he’s lost teammates both in the military and as a firefighter. “Our mission is to raise awareness across America to bring back the true meaning of Memorial Day,” DeLeon said. “We are honored to be here at one of the national cemeteries. I, along with my fellow teammates, are just trying to pay back, even if it’s just a small piece of appreciation for those that laid down their lives.” See more HERE.
