Ted & Joan Eaton - British Columbia Canada

I really enjoyed my trip to Surrey, British Columbia, Canada.

I drove up from Seattle to meet with Ted & Joan Eaton.  Ted served in the British Royal Navy during WWII.  It was a beautiful day.  The Eatons surprised me with a fantastic lunch.  Then Ted and I sat down and I interviewed him about his experiences during the War.  Ted did a super job in describing in detail his unique time in Burma.  He showed me his chest full of medals he earned there.  I cannot remember a time where I enjoyed meeting two people more than Joan and Ted.  They have been married over 50 years together.  Joan said it was love at first sight and I believe her.  The Eatons are some of the nicest people I have ever met.  Kindness and Integrity.  Two words that could describe them.  I was interviewing Ted as a favor for a fellow member of the Association of Personal Historians, Don Clark, from England.  He is making a documentary about the recipients of the Burma Star.  I can't wait to see the final movie.
