Higher Ground Los Angeles and The County of Los Angeles Department of Military and Veterans Affairs Team Up With Carry The Load to Honor Fallen Service Members and First Responders.
Los Angeles, CA — Higher Ground Los Angeles (HGLA) and the County of Los Angeles Department of Military and Veterans Affairs (MVA) are teaming up with Carry The Load, a non-profit organization that originated to restore the true meaning of Memorial Day and now also honors fallen service members, first responders, and their families.
Similar to the Olympic torch relay, Carry The Load hosts an annual event relaying the American Flag down the East and West Coasts of the U.S. converging in Dallas, Texas on Memorial Day. Bob Hope Patriotic Hall is proud to serve as a point of transition on this West Coast relay.
The flag will arrive at Patriotic Hall at 1:00 p.m. and the event will continue until 2:30 p.m. Participants may join the relay at any point in the route, walking 1 or 2 blocks before the Hall, or if you choose, you may meet at the earlier exchange point, Los Angeles Fire Department Training Center, 1700 Stadium Way, Los Angeles, CA 90012, at 11:30 a.m.
Please join us for a reception on May 8, 2018, in recognition of our nation’s heroes.
