Carry the Load helps those who serve the people

Franklin Co. GW Doyle Brown and Titus Co. GW Jerry Ash and other  locals escort the Carry the Load group into downtown Mount Vernon. The seventh annual Carry the Load walk from West Point Cemetery in New York state to Reverchon Park in Dallas by Memorial Day trekked through Mount Vernon and Franklin County along the Bankhead Highway, now Main St., in the early evening hours of Friday, May 25.

For more information about this effort and a listing of local citizens who joined the walk, see the May 31 edition of the Mount Vernon Optic-Herald.
