A young man of barely 20 years goes to war. He hasn't been drafted or coerced. Nor is it peer pressure. For him, it was the right thing to do. Serve and protect.
November 11 is not the only day we remember the sacrifices Dad and thousands of others made in a journey that changed the world. More importantly, it changed these young lives forever.
He was lucky. He came home. Occasionally, he would tell stories of his escapades - filled with humour, the good times. It's hard to imagine that there are good times in war, but those were the tales he shared. Not the hardship. Not the campaigns. Not the loss of life and friendships.
Today, we remember our Dad, Lance-Corporal Iver K. (Bud) Edall, Third Canadian Field Park Company (Royal Canadian Engineers). We remember him, those he served with, and the many who went before and since.
Thank you is not enough for what our servicemen and women endure to give us what we so blatantly take for granted.
