CONCORD, NC (WJZY)
One national group is walking through the east coast to help people remember the true meaning of memorial day.
"Carry the Load" members are marching from West Point, NY to Dallas, TX on their mission to honor the fallen.
The group got started by former Navy Seal Clint Bruce. He couldn't help notice that people around him view Memorial Day as a day off from work or a day to have a BBQ.
Bruce decided he was going to do something about and strapped a backpack and marched on for his fallen friends.
They are walking through North Carolina and will stop today at the Charlotte Fire Department Station 10.
They will continue walking towards Dallas and end their journey there on Memorial Day.
