Rememberance Day, November 11, 2010
Lewis lived to the 1970's, but was always affected by the Mustard gas he ingested and died from it's effects.
Obviously my dad lived (I was born well after the photo), but then, he was one of many who fought the war on North American soil. He helped build the Alaskan Highway and built a jeep from scratch (so says my mom and Dad didn't dispute it). He wanted to fly but because of his eyesight (you needed 20/20 back then) he was grounded.
Let's remember all who fought, past or present so we could be free to praise or complain about our governments. That is truely a blessing because there are still places in this world where that is not allowed whatsoever.
