EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) – Members of the national organization “Carry the Load” are continuing their walking and biking journey across the country in honor of service men and women who lost their lives in the line of duty.
On Wednesday, the group is walking through El Paso with the name of fallen Deputy Peter Herrera on their backs. Every day, members write names of fallen heroes on their backs and carry them with them.
“When we came into El Paso County, we started carrying Peter Herrera’s and we will carry him all the way through El Paso,” volunteer David Lindsey told KTSM. “Once we get through El Paso, we’ll take his tag and we’ll put inside a backpack and he will go all the way to Dallas with us.”
