Gold Star families brave rainy weather to support each other at Carry The Load event in Dallas on Memorial Day

Despite heavy rain, families gathered at Reverchon Park in Dallas Memorial Day to resume the tradition shortened last year by a pandemic.

Gold Star families, fueled by the chance to gather together and support each other, renewed their goals to keep names, faces and stories of sacrifice alive. The tradition on the final day of the Memorial Day events sponsored by the nonprofit group Carry The Load, is a midday Memorial Day parade of the placards that bear the names, faces, dates of death and stories of military members and first responders killed in the line of duty.
