It was such a pleasure to perform as part of the first National Day of Service Concert. On stage and behind the scenes, we all felt proud to be celebrating the wonderful men and women who serve our country. I was particularly thrilled to sing my patriotic song ”Canada My Canada” with the Young Singers Children’s Choir.
To see my profile highlighted on the big screen made me proud that the Canadian Armed Forces were being recognized among the other emergency service providers. I feel – as I believe most of my colleagues do – that everyone who puts on a uniform is simply doing the job. I am thankful for a grateful nation, and I am honored to be given, on behalf of the wider community of the Canadian Armed Forces, the recognition on the National Day of Service.
The concert was a wonderful showcase of some of Canada’s greatest talent honoring those who serve our community with the greatest of distinction. What a pleasure to be in attendance to witness this outpouring of respect and thanks for jobs well done. Congratulations!
