Ft. Bliss National Cemetery hosts “Tribute to the Fallen and their Families” Plaque Dedication Ceremony

The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), National Cemetery Administration (NCA), and ‘Carry The Load’ relay teams will hold a Plaque Dedication Ceremony to honor the fallen and their families at Fort Bliss National Cemetery on Wednesday afternoon.

Carry The Load teams have run across the country to provide active ways to connect Americans to the sacrifices made by military service members and their families.

Upon arrival at Fort Bliss National Cemetery, NCA will dedicate the “Tribute to the Fallen and their Families” plaque.

The relay teams started marching April 25, and will finish May 26, 2019.  Via three routes, the teams have covered more than 11,500 miles, traveled through 40 states and visited 26 VA national cemeteries.

Following the 30-minute dedication ceremony, Carry The Load participants will continue their journey to the next destination.

All three routes will converge on Dallas, Texas, on Sunday, May 26.
