Pipes & Drums in Los Angeles Print E-mail

The Pipes & Drums were invited by the Canadian Consulate in LA to perform in honour of actor Gary Sinise (Forrest Gump, CSI NY) who is deeply involved in a wounded soldier rehab program in the US. Our point man in LA was former Black Watch member, Lionel Chetwynd. Accompanying the Pipes & Drums was Sgt Dittmar, MCpl Ramsay, and Cpl Reid, all Afghan vets. Of note, Sgt Dittmar will receive a Mentioned in Dispatches 30 May in Valcartier by the CDS for his gallantry on the battlefield in Afghanistan.
