Canadians Seek Vietnam Vets

In 1995 the Canadian Vietnam Veterans Memorial Association in Windsor Ontario was created to ensure that the efforts of those Canadians who chose to serve with the United States Forces during the Vietnam War continue to be remembered.  With the incredible efforts of two men who joined the U.S.Marines, a memorial was installed in Windsor that same year identifying those Canadians that were killed or missing in action. Today there are 173 names inscribed on that memorial and each year more names are added.

Today we exist not only to promote awareness, support veterans, and remember those that lost their lives while serving in Vietnam, but to also ensure that each Canadian that served is identified.  We know that between 1959 and 1975 approximately 40,000 Canadians enlisted in the US Forces, however as no government knows the exact number, we have taken on that task to ensure they are counted and welcomed home.  Visit our website to find out more on the “Be Counted” project.
