Canada participated in many ways during WWII, more than people realize. Canadian forces landed on Juno Beach on D-day and played a large part in the Battle of the Atlantic. By the end of the war, Canada had the 4th largest allied air force in the world. The Canadian military has fought alongside the United States in most major conflicts since World War II, including the Korean War, the Gulf War, the Kosovo War, and most recently the war in Afghanistan. Join us as we pay honor to our neighbors to the north in this our annual Canadian Military Tribute program.
