April 26, 2019 – Day 2
Carry the Load continues on its West Coast route after a successful first day in Seattle, Washington. Today, they march on in memory of a true American warrior — John Pelham.
Pelham was assigned to 2nd Battalion, 3rd Special Forces Group (Airborne), Fort Bragg, N.C. He died Feb. 12, 2014 in Kapisa province, Afghanistan, of
wounds caused by small-arms fire. Pelham was a kind-hearted, determined and athletically gifted man, with a strong sense of duty, zest for life,
infectious laugh and enthusiasm that made him beloved by many, his family said. His grandfather, my father, was career military,” Wendall Pelham
said. “My brother was a ranger and I believe Alex always had that warrior spirit.”
