    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 Exeter Elementary School Exeter, Ontario

    This is lovely. Sitting here in tears. My son Private Sean Gordon McDonald was taken by an I.E.D on feb 7th 2010. Still feels like yesterday. He was born in Toronto. I'm so proud of him he had duel nationality and chose to join the Military. God bless all your troops past and present. You do a fantastic job boys. Jacquie McDonald

    Purchased "TO OUR CANADIAN TROOPS" DVD about seven months ago. Play it all the time in my van. Dennis, you are to be commended on being an artist in designing this outstanding DVD that has great music for all ages to listen to, which brings back memories the the past and the present. Thank-you.

    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. Craig A. McPhee Founder and President Warrant Officer (Ret'd) Wreaths Across Canada
