In Remembrance: Meridian man served country, family

While serving overseas, Edwin "Ed" Pierce unexpectedly found himself in a foxhole with a German soldier. "Neither one shot at each other," said his wife, Marjorie. "He told me, ‘We just went our separate ways.'" He never wanted to hurt anyone, according to his sister Lois Obenchain. "When he came home, he really had a hard time," she said. "He felt so bad about (the war), but he had fought for his country." Pierce died Jan. 27 at the Veteran's home in Boise.
