It's been approximately eight months since a local man gained fame for his work on veterans graves in the Drumheller Cemetery.
So how is Eric Dahl's project going?
"The goal was to have the front field of honour, the second field of honour here all cleaned up and nice and cleared for Remembrance Day, which was accomplished. So now I've moved on to the original field of honour where most of the old boys are from the Great War (World War 1) and the veterans there are starting from pretty much after the war," said Dahl.
He's now dug deeper into the lives of those who served our country by creating his own roll call list and cross referenced it with another list alphabetically.
"If you give me a name of a veteran in this cemetery, more than likely I can tell you exactly where he is," Dahl explained.
He's also doing research in the archives about some of the men, trying to get a sense of who these gentleman are, what they did and what they saw. His actions have inspired other people around the world to pick up tools and clean graves.
"I also know I'm not the the original to do it. It's not an original idea to come out and tidy up a grave plot, but yes other people have taken on this exact same idea in different parts of the world," said Dahl humbly.
He commends Andrew Lumish of Florida for cleaning off graves in his spare time. Dahl has no plans on stopping this project yet.
"I will be here, like I promised, until this is done some how, some way. "I'll figure it out and I hope that the families and folks enjoy this and are happy with the work being done," Dahl told Drum FM.
