The family lived in Ellesnburg, Washington from 1973-1990, where Edward began his career as a forest warden and then forest fire-fighting crew supervisor with DNR, continuing until his retirement in 2005. Moving to Wapato in 1990, Edward became active with friends he met in the Yakama Nation. He learned to speak the Yakama dialect of the Sahaptin Language, and eventually taught classes.

He took these commitments extremely seriously and considered it a true honor to be associated with these groups and share his knowledge of military history.
