    My father, David G. Marshall, was only 19 when he landed on the beaches of Normandy several weeks after D-Day and fought through France, Holland and Belgium as a member of the South Alberta Regiment http://su.pr/2YQGMb. He passed away in 2005 of ALS.

    Having several family members and friends across the years who were a part of many of these war efforts, I can’t think of a time when their stories never were a part of my life. As for WW I, the most powerful thoughts I carry are from my great grandfather who was a field surgeon during that war. He survived many horrors and survived to come home and continue being a country doctor in west Texas, seldom talking about what he experienced and witnessed during those years. He came back, he told me once, to continue the work through the God given gift of being a healer.
