WFAA is a proud sponsor of an organization called Carry the Load, started by two former Navy Seals.
The group is walking to restore the true meaning of Memorial Day and raise awareness for our veterans and their families, along with the foundations that assist police and firefighters.
Each May the group organizes a cross country walk, which ends in Dallas.
The walk began April 29 at West Point Cemetery in New York. Team members traveled through New Jersey, Pennsylvania, all the way down to Georgia and through Tennessee.
News 8's Jim Douglas caught up with the group in Arkansas as they make their way to Dallas.
The Dallas Memorial March is May 25-26 at Reverchon Park in Dallas. Go here for more information and watch our Carry the Load special at 6:30 p.m. Saturday on Channel 8.
