As a way to honor the men and women who served his country in armed forces, a Canadian man, Eric Dahl cleans the grave stones of veterans by hand. He is cleaning the Drumheller cemetry in east-central Alberta, Canada.
Dahl feels that his work gives him a lot of peace.

While on one day, Dahl can clean up to 10 to 15 graves in a day; there are some days when he can only do one or two.
Dahl’s work is also drawing a lot of attention from the local community as well as online.

According to Dahl, he is not dong this work for recognition.
Though it’s not easy work, Dahl said he’ll “never stop.”
Before Dahl started work, almost all the gravestones were black and unreadable, now many of them are clean and in great shape.
