    A good over-view. Hard to include a vast amount of information in only an hour’s time frame. With 3 sections of the military to cover, I thought the speaker did a great job.

    Enjoyed the seminar.

    I can’t wait to start researching my Canadian relatives to see if any may have served. Great info, great presentation.

    I was expecting more about the records and less of the history, but interesting nonetheless.
