Memorial May 2021

Una Stamus


First, if you are a previous team member, thank you for your support and participation. If you are new, welcome! We hope to see you all, virtually or in person at the May events to fulfill this important mission!

When we named this team in 2017, who would have guessed the added meaning today. “Una Stamus” is Latin for “We stand as one.” Today, “We are all in this together,” is often used to describe the times we have lived through together over the past year. Now, more than ever, it is important that we unify. And surely, Memorial Day presents the ideal opportunity for us to come together and stand as one in support of the men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice for the rest of us.

Our family feels a strong since of indebtedness to those soldiers, police, firefighters, and first responders who have served, and especially to the men and women of the families who have paid the ultimate price. This is the very least we can do. Brent leads the Storyboard committee again this year, helping gather and produce memorials to our fallen heroes. Katy helps him by doing all the graphic design work for these tributes. Yvonne is in charge of team fundraising and attends events as her work schedule permits. Max and Maddie volunteer as well.

You may be asking, what exactly are the Freemans asking me to sign-up for, and what exactly is Carry the Load?

Carry The Load is a non-profit dedicated to providing active, meaningful ways to honor and celebrate the sacrifices made by our nation’s heroes — military, law enforcement, firefighters and first responders. For details, please visit Be sure to watch the moving testimonial from co-founder former Navy SEAL Clint Bruce.

Your support level is really up to you. Register and walk with us. And, if you would like to make a donation, by all means please do so!  Our target for 2021 is $5,000. As you can imagine, fundraising will be challenging this year, so we appreciate your support more than ever.

If you would like to invite others to join Una Stamus, or start their own team, do it! If you want to volunteer at CTL events or have an organization that you’d like to get involved (church, scouts, honor societies, et. al.), by all means, let us know and we’ll hook you up.

Thank you for your support. See you in May! 

Brent, Yvonne, Katy, Max, and Maddie Freeman
