To Our Canadian Troops Commemorative CD: GUESTBOOK OR CONTACT

Exeter Elementary School

November 25, 2014

Dear Dennis Leclair,

We really liked your song “To Our Canadian Troops”. There were different dynamics to make this very very interesting. We really liked the end of the song because the words were very clear and we sang it louder than the rest of the song. It had a
lot of meaning for us and it showed us how proud we are when singing the chorus. Karlee says that it helps us all to remember how others fight so that we can be free.

A lot of us could connect to the song on a personal level. It reminds Leah of her Opa who died near Remembrance Day. For William it brings back memories of ancestors who fought in World Wars I and II. Olivia made a connection to a book about a man
coming back from the war to his family. Ella thinks of her dad when she sings the song as her dad is far away. Paige’s, Sydnee’s and Nathan’s connection is that their great-grandfathers and neighbours fought and died in wars. Will, Michael and
Brayden think of their two great- grandfathers who fought but survived only to die shortly after the war. Keera says it reminds her of a war story from home and a poem that says “they gave their yesterday for our today”.

Thank you.

From Mr. Gackstetter’s grade 4 class

Thank you for sharing this with me Dennis. What an awesome tribute to our Troops. It has been three years since we lost Mark....and it seems like only three months. Anything that helps people remember the sacrifice...remember the heroes....is certainly worthwhile. Perhaps we will be able to attend this festival in November!

Hi Dennis:
Congradulatins are in order to you Dennis for all the time and effort you have put into Commemorative CD. This is the first I have ever heard of your projcect. Please don't get upset. I started W.A.C. in 2007, and still heavily involved in paper work. plua spending many hours on the computer - time just flies bye. Just got three new people on the Board of Directors. Over time, my work load will be reduced. Our inauguration was 4 Dec 11 at the National Military Cemetery at Beechwood Cemetery in Ottawa. Newfoundland is well on their way to becoming a Branch, Notre Dame Cemetery in Ottawa want's to get involved, have another person in B.C. working on getting volunteers together to form a Branch on the west coast. This will go across Canada.
Great to hear from you, and keep up the good work. Take care, keep in touch.

Hi Dennis,
I have been following The Song's journey with keen interest. I find it interesting that my daughter is now principal at Anne McClymont. Such a small town, now such a big world for this song.
It is a priviledge to have been a tiny cog that helped start this big wheel rolling.

Mr. LeClair,



My choir and I were very pleased to perform your song "To Our Canadian Troops" at our recent Remembrance Day Ceremony. There were few dry eyes in the house as these young innocent voices wished our Canadian Troops "home safe." We will certainly continue to use this song for such occasions in the future. Thank you for sharing your talents with us.

Garry received CD yesterday and of course my ears were tuned in as well. Oh My, bone chilling on the heels of our tour through Korea. Thankyou again and again, we are so grateful for your support for the troops and their families. We need to be on our knees every day in Canada.

Eloise

November 16, 2010

Hello Dennis:

I ordered the CD for my husband. Sunday evening Garry and I returned from Seoul South Korea, we were invited by the Korean government in coordination with Canada. Garry is a Korean veteran, he served on HMCS Iroquois in 1952. He lost three buddies on the ship on October 2nd 1952. This was the 60th anniversary of the Korean War and so we had many and memorable services of Remembrance.

How blessed we have been especially in Korea. Garry was also invited to lay the wreath in the United Nations Cemetery in Busan on behalf the Royal Canadian Navy. Thankyou so much for your part on behalf of the Canadian Troops.

Best Regards
Eloise

Hi Dennis, I just took a quick look at the site you mentioned above. The song gave me goose bumps and chills up my spine. Thanks for taking the time to send the link to me. I will re-post it so others may see it. I have a few friends who I think will be interested in it as well. Including my friend who is in Afghanistan right now.

I listened to your CD to-day Dennis and I loved it. It is so very kind and generous of you to support our Troops in such a touching gesture. My brother Pte. Kenneth W.Norton was KIA in the Korean War Nov. 5, 1951 and I am so very proud that he is among the thousands and thousands who fought and are still fighting for freedom. We need to count our blessings that we have never had to endure what our Armed Forces face on a daily basis. God Bless each and everyone of them and may they never be forgotten. We will remeber them. Amen.

Hi Dennis, Great job showing support for our troops and families with the CD that say's so much! I learn more and more as I work with the troops what they are going through and every Canadian should be supporting them completely, whether people want them in Afghanistan or not. They are doing their duty, serving this Great Country. An important part of the Canadian way, our #1 team, our Canadian troops and their families!!!! www.supportcanadatroops.ca Brian

I am also proud to say that I am from the town of Espanola Ontario a small town west of Sudbury and probably know of some of Dennis's relatives. ALthough I no longer live there I still get my Espanola Monitor and that is how I heard of this song you have written. It makes me proud to be Canadian and I hope the CD makes it big. I will definitely be purchasing one in the near future. Thanks Dennis for thinking of our troops. I will be sharing your web site with many friends and relatives.

I was able to listen to the entire commemorative CD yesterday while travelling to and from band rehearsal in Sackville. I enjoyed the recording very much and congratulate you on producing a very professional CD. As I've said before Heather's instrumental and vocal arrangements are top-notch and the Naden Band played them well. I hope the marketing goes well and would like to sincerely thank both of you, and any others involved in this project, for their efforts - there are not many in this country would be so passionate toward supporting the Canadian Forces, their families and Canadian Veterans.

Hello Dennis,
I just purchased 2 CD's, the personal use one and I want you to make sure that the purchase went through at your end please. I decided to wait until the new year as it will be a perfect gift to give my sister in February. Thank you for the great work you are doing. I believe in supporting our troops, the media overseas and those who want to show our Canadian troops and their families that we are with them. So once again thank you!!

November 25, 2009

Hi Dennis,

I heard about my project through my mom who watched the Remembrance Day ceremonies on CBC and CP24 a couple of weeks ago. She heard your song and saw the video (on one of the two channels; she can't remember which!) and she knew then that she wanted to purchase the CD, especially since the proceeds all go to a good cause. My younger brother also a member of the Canadian Forces; he's based in CFB Edmonton and was sent over to Afghanistan in March 2008. Fortunately, he came home safe and sound and I feel for those families who aren't as lucky as we are.

I have passed on your website to other friends and family in the hopes that the word will spread and more people will support your project.

As a family member with a loved one in the Canadian Forces, my folks and I would like to thank you for putting this CD together and making people aware of the important job that they do whether it's overseas or at home.

Sincerely,
Melissa

As a military mom, your expression of gratitude was heartwarming as were the messages from Honourable Peter MacKay, CDS Gen.

I enjoyed listening to the instrumental version of the Naden Band of Maritime Forces Pacific.

While I have never served,I am,as my late father John Fredrick IRONSIDE,Leading Telegraphist Canadian Navy(HMCS Sackville)WW2,proclaimed,FIERCELY/PROUDLY CANADIAN . Listening too your tribute I could not help but flash back ,complete with "tears of joy" for my dad,and FOR ALL CANADIANS who have done/do SO VERY MUCH,so that I may enjoy the freedoms that I do as a FIRECELY PROUD CANADIAN . Again,Mr. LeClair,I salute you,I say THANK YOU!! .

I was privileged to have experienced Dennis' performance at the True Patriot Love Gala in Toronto. All of the folks at my table rose to their feet and toasted the song as it began. Way to go. So exciting!
Great that you were able to have some quality face time with some VIPs while you were there. Maybe someone will empty their pockets and help this project out. Keep your fingers crossed and don't give up on your dream. You've only just begun (hey, good title for a song...).

Glad I was able to help in some small way.

Tim & Ramona Langevin

November 13, 2009

Dennis, having met you and listened to your song to the Troops, my wife Ramona and I can't thank you enough for putting your own time, resources, finances and creative dedication into this project.

Living in Canada it is simply to easy to take for granted our lifestyle, quality of life, freedom of choice and general security that these brave men and women of our Canadian Forces sacrifice so much for, to provide us!

It is truly inspiring to find a fellow Canadian that has taken it to heart on behalf of all Canadians to thank our Troops & their Families and to represent in song the sacrifices that they make!

We congratulate you and thank you sincerely for your graciousness and support!

Please advise me as to how to accomplish this. I would like to get these out by the end of the month if possible. Many thanks and God Bless.

I would like to send this to ALL our 270 Chartwell homes across Canada and encourage them to play it on remembrance day as well. We have many families who are oversees fighting for our freedom and I am sure they would be touched to know we care enough to think of them especially on this day!

Dennis,

ABSOLUTELY beautiful!! God bless ALL of our troops - Canadian as well as American. My heart goes out to them & their families & I just pray to God every night to bring them back safely to their families. I prayed for my son, as well, but God obviously had a different path for him to follow. I miss him more than words can ever describe and will love him until the day I die. I will take this with me to my grave. It's wonderful people such as yourself that keep their memories & my memories alive. Thanks for all you do!!!

God bless you,

I have a son in the PPCLI he has served two deployments in Afghanistan and one in Bosnia. I am very proud of my son. He is a true soldier. Just like his grandfather from Newfoundland who served in the first world war and was injured and saved one of his fellow soldiers by carring him out on his back while holding onto his own injured stomach. Grandpa believd just as my son belives that everyone deserves a chance of freedom and happiness in this world. Through all the Canadian Soldiers of the first and second World War, who lost their lives and those who came back scarred mentally,physically spiritually and emotionally to give us Canadians Freedom and a safe place to live. Thank you on hehalf of all us Canadians who appreciate these Canadian men and women from the bottom of our hearts for their Great Sacrifices. This is why our young men and women are over in Afghanistan today to try to make a better life for these people. Thank you. Patricia Horan

Very nice song Dennis. You are right our troops do not have a song and when the die our media forgets their names and gives them a number. Keep up the good work.

Hi Dennis,

I believe you are a fellow Jessie Hamilton Public School classmate, if I have the correct Dennis Leclair.

Great site. I am very impressed with all your accomplishments and interests.

Thank you for the heartfelt tribute to our troops so they can benefit from your efforts.

Best of luck.

Hi Dennis,
I just listened to the song you wrote "To Our Canadian Troops". The lyrics are so heartfelt. I'm sure everyone who has heard this song and yet to have heard it, will agree that it is truly a Godsend of encouragement for the troops, the families and the neighbours who feel for them, especially when they lose a loved one.
In McKerrow, we have lost one soldier..who grew up down the street from me...Glen Arnold and In Espanola, a friend of mine, Jane Byers, who lost a son David Byers. They were both in a group handing candy out to the Afghan children, when an old man on a bike approached them, waving, supposedly to his family, then blew himself up along with Glen, David and another soldier that day. This happened a few years ago. We all felt their pain. I was at both funerals and to see the soldiers carrying the caskets is surreal. They are just young boys and I mean young. Yet, they bravely continue on. They all need our prayers and support. If there is anything I can help you with, please let me know. The computer is a great place to start.
I also heard some of your other songs and there's one in particular I really like, "Rhythm of My Heart". So keep on writing from your heart and the music notes will follow.

God Bless You,
Love and Hugs, Debbie :-}

p.s. I just think this is a wonderful thing you are doing for our Country. God Bless Canada!
