Mr Archambault, (as you were back in the day),
Congratulations on your outstanding career and retirement in the rank of Major. Although only serving with CF for shy of two years, I completed 38 years service and I have to say you were one of the most professional warrant officers I had the privilege to serve with. Not only that you are a true gentleman whom your family and friends should be very proud of – which I’m sure they are. Good luck with your future and the new family additions. Take care.

A remarkable gentleman: professional, civil, and courteous. I was one of Dany’s instructors at CFSCE when he CFR’d, and I learned far more from him than the other way ‘round. We were students together in Borden, and crossed paths again in Latvia. Dany always stood out as a kind, collected, and quiet professional.

Well done to you Dany. It was a pleasure knowing you, and hearing of your wonderful home life where you dedicated so much to Foster care. All the best to you and yours.

Blair
