About the Speaker
Clint Bruce is well known for having co-founded Carry The Load, a non-profit dedicated to providing active, meaningful ways to honor and celebrate the sacrifices made by our nation’s heroes — military, law enforcement, firefighters and first responders, but he has local ties as well. Bruce was an outstanding athlete while attending South Garland High School, where he was the starting middle-linebacker and very active in powerlifting. Upon graduation from South Garland, Clint continued his education and football career at The United States Naval Academy, where he lettered 4 years, starting at middle linebacker. After football, Clint continued his Navy career as a member of the elite SEAL team.
Carry The Load started when Bruce was sitting at a barbecue on Memorial Day. As he thought about the friends he lost in combat, he couldn’t help but notice that the people around him had a very different view of what Memorial Day meant. See the full story in the video to the right.
What started as a mission to restore the true meaning of Memorial Day has broadened to include more than just our military heroes and more than just the one holiday. Carry The Load works to bring all American’s together to participate in honoring our nation’s heroes every day.
Opportunity for Community Support
In traditional fashion, Prayer Breakfast Committee will honor a local non-profit organization with a monetary donation. This year, the Counseling Institute of Texas was selected.
Attendees are also be invited to join the Committee in brightening the holiday season for local families by bringing a new, unwrapped toy to donate to The Salvation Army.
Because of facility requirements, we must charge the full registration amount for reservations not canceled two business days prior to the event. See our fee policy for additional details.
