"While I'm not in the habit of sending fan letters to anyone, I must commend Rod Black as MC at the Sea King 50th Anniversary dinner in Halifax. With equal measures of formality, comedy and tribute to those present he carried the whole evening superbly. The poem to being Canadian was the best I've ever heard." - Bob Stewart, Lt. Cdr, Retired Sea King Pilot
