In time for Remembrance Day comes an album entitled “The Guardian Angel Platoon.”
A Canadian veteran of the war in Afghanistan named Dennis MacKenzie is behind this.
The PEI native is advocating for the soothing qualities of music for those battling post-traumatic stress disorder.
MacKenzie was diagnosed with PTSD after a seven-month deployment to Afghanistan in 2007. He received a medical discharge 2013.
The record is a concept album meant to draw attention to issues like the suicide rate among veterans.
