Carry the Load passes through Lincoln to spread Memorial Day message

LINCOLN, Neb. (KOLN) – A group known as Carry the Load is passing through Lincoln on Tuesday with flags, memories and a message to honor fallen first responders and military members.

“Usually start around 7 o’clock in the morning and it’s usually a walk and the walks range from 3 to 5 miles,” said Joseph Meno.

Meno is a veteran and current Dallas police officer. He was taking a turn walking in Lincoln, with a flag in hand and a backpack bearing six names of Dallas police officers who have died. Many who walk do the same with patches, photos, and notes to the fallen with them – like the name implies, carrying their load.
