I'll bet you didn't know...


About the Canadian Cross of Sacrifice... at Arlington National Cemetery.

It was in this spirit of friendship that in 1925 Canadian Prime Minister MacKenzie King first proposed a memorial to the large number of United States citizens who enlisted in the Canadian Armed Forces, and lost their lives during World War I.

Because the Canadians entered the war long before the United States, many Americans enlisted in Canada to join the fighting in Europe.
