Birth: Sep. 23, 1983
Death: Aug. 3, 2006


Private with the 1st Battalion of the Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry, based in Edmonton, AB. Aged 22. Son of Gaétan and Diane Dallaire and brother of Mikael, he was born in Calgary and grew up at the airbase in Cold Lake, Alberta. He joined the military right out of high school.

Pte Dallaire, Sgt Vaughan Ingram and Cpl Bryce Keller were killed and six other Canadian soldiers injured as the result of a rocket-propelled grenade attack by Taliban militants near the village of Pashmul, approximately 25 kilometres south west of Kandahar City, Afghanistan. The men were only weeks from completing their six-month tours and returning to Canada.

A piper played Amazing Grace and comrades carried Dallaire's flag-draped coffin to his final resting place in the National Military Cemetery on Friday, August 11, 2006. A bugler sounded the Last Post and Reveille and three volleys of rifle shots were fired over his grave. Dallaire's mother received the flag that draped her son's coffin while his father was presented with his headdress, scabbard and medals.

On October 25, 2006 Pte Dallaire received a posthumous award of Mention in Dispatches.

Citation: "Pte Dallaire was deployed with 9 Platoon, C Company, 1 PPCLI Battle Group during Operation ARCHER Rotation 1. On August 3, 2006, during combat operations in the Pashmul region of Afghanistan, he exposed himself to great personal risk to provide cover fire for his section. Traversing an open field under enemy fire, Pte Dallaire directed his section to keep moving until it reached its destination safely while he provided cover fire. His actions reflect the highest standard of his regiment and the Canadian Forces."

A mention in dispatches, marked by a small bronze oak leaf attached to a service medal, recognizes "valiant conduct, devotion to duty or other distinguished service".
