While we are grateful for our nation’s heroes every day, Memorial Day offers a national day to honor the men and women who gave their lives in service to our country.
At AT&T, we know our nation’s service men and women make sacrifices to protect our country and our freedoms. It is an honor to support them, and this year AT&T is a proud sponsor of Carry The Load.
Carry The Load works to bring all Americans together to participate in honoring our nation’s heroes every day. This includes a national, 6,200-mile relay where veterans and citizens honor those heroes’ sacrifices and take a turn experiencing the weight of a rucksack. All of the money raised at this event goes directly to support Carry The Load’s Continuum of Care program, where partner charities are on the front lines to help those heroes and their families who have given so much to this country.
In 2003, AT&T employee Matt Foster, then a soldier in the US Army, left his family, friends and future wife for an active duty deployment. His Forward Operating Base (FOB) would often go on “Comms Blackout,” which usually meant a soldier on his FOB had been killed or seriously injured and their family was being officially notified. It’s that experience that led Matt to get involved with Carry The Load.
We know our nation’s service men and women make sacrifices to protect our country and our freedoms. As a company, it is an honor to support them. As a supporter of this year’s Carry The Load, AT&T is proud to stand behind all participants across the country, and those in New York at the East Coast kick off.
