Got involved with Carry the Load when I: first learned about how this organization helps local Veteran organizations in our area and signed up immediately.

What I like best about Carry the Load/ Reveille Peak Ranch:  What I like about CTL is the challenge of bringing the meaning of Memorial Day back to everyone and how our local veterans and their families benefit from the money raised. As far as RPR it is by far one of the most amazing places and a true reminder of freedom.

One thing I’d like to challenge myself to do: Grow my team to 100 participants and raise $100,000.

 

Damon, a Navy veteran, will lead one special team called “No Walker Left Behind” for Carry the Load. This team of 20 will begin their march a day early, departing from the Texas State Cemetery in East Austin at 0700 on Saturday, March 23rd, walking over 50 miles to Reveille Peak Ranch in Burnet to arrive in time for Sunday’s opening ceremony. “Marching from the cemetery brings it home for me and helps me remind my kids how significant the people in this resting place mean to us and America. That’s why we do it” says Fogel. This team will also carry an American flag they’ll present to the family of one of our fallen upon arrival at Reveille Peak Ranch and formal ceremony.
