April 29, 2019 – Day 5
Carry the Load’s west coast relay team made a stop at the Eagle Point National Cemetery to honor the memory of Jamie Leonard.
Jaime was a graduate of West Point and served as a Military Intelligence Officer. Jamie, along with an Army LtCol and a civilian contractor, were killed on June 8, 2013 in the Paktika province of Afghanistan by an individual dressed in an Afghan National Army uniform in what the media would call an “insider attack”. Jamie was one of the hardest working people I knew. She was humble and always put the team first. At the time, Jamie was the highest ranking female to have died in combat in the GWOT.
