Student’s final reflection:
Born in Sugden, AB, Sigurd finished school at the age of 14 and became a farmer. He worked for his mother on their home farm until the age of 19. Although Sigurd’s father had passed away before he enlisted in the military, Signurd wore his father’s wedding ring as a keepsake.
Leaving his loved ones behind, as well as the life he had back home, Sigurd gave up his freedom and safety so we can now enjoy ours. It was a very brave and courageous thing to do, and for that we are so very thankful to you.
