Los Angeles, CA — Higher Ground Los Angeles (HGLA) and the County of Los Angeles Department of Military and Veterans Affairs (MVA) are teaming up with Carry The Load, a non-profit organization that originated to restore the true meaning of Memorial Day and now honors fallen service members, first responders, and their families.
