Today, I remember my beloved grandfather and middle namesake, George Dufour, who fought in both of the 20th century's bloody World Wars. He lied about his age in order to follow his elder brother to the front lines, and the Canadian army was so desperate for bodies, they didn't ask twice. He was 14 years old when he enlisted. He served in France, and experienced trench warfare. Unimaginable.
