What started as a one-day memorial march in Dallas 10 years ago, today has grown to a 32-day Memorial May awareness campaign.

A 15,500-mile national relay and rallies in more than 70 cities in all 50 states, all to honor the sacrifices of our nation’s military, veterans, first responders and their families.
