Welcome to My Personal Page
Carry The Load's mission is to restore the true meaning of Memorial Day. I plan to remember, honor, and celebrate our nation's horoes by participating in the event and raising funds to support organizations which help heroes and their families.
I have walked in the Dallas Memorial March for several years and this weekend is always one of the highlights of my year. Usually some, and at times all, of my family be walking with me.
Join me at the March in Dallas, or along the relay route the night before in Rockwall.
Who are you carrying? Thanks for asking:
LT Pete Ober, KIA July 16 2003
CPT Brad Walters, KIFA August 16 2007
Pete and Brad were my classmates at The Citadel and both were helicopter pilots, Pete in the Navy and Brad in the Marine Corps. If you come to the walk you'll hear more about them.
Chief Henry Wizeman. My dad wasn't KIA, but did serve in Korea in 1951&2 with the Marine Corps. He spent a total of 6 years active with the USMC and then another 41 with the US Army Reserve while a police officer with the City of St. Louis, and was the Chief for two towns on the other side of the river. It's a time that military and first responders come together and is just a sweet time to remember him.
