The FBI Dallas CAAA is joining Carry The Load, in partnership with the National Cemetery Administration, for a day of service at national cemeteries across the country on September 11th. The time will be between 9:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. Our Dallas Chapter volunteers will help to beautify the cemetery grounds and clean the headstones of our fallen heroes at the DFW National Cemetery located at 2000 Mountain Creek Parkway, Dallas, Texas 75211. Closed toe shoes are required with casual attire, jeans, etc. and work gloves are encouraged. Work supplies will be provided. No pets are allowed or children under 10. Children 10+ must be accompanied by a parent.
As many as 2,500 headstones have been cleaned in a day at this location. We know it is a Wednesday and work day but if you can spare a couple of hours in a meaningful way to honor and celebrate the sacrifices made by our nation’s heroes – military, law enforcement, firefighters, rescue personnel and their families, it would mean so much to all. After all, it is Patriot’s Day and a National Day of Service and Remembrance. What better way to do so.
