Korean War (1950 – 1953)

The Korean War was fought from 1950 to 1953. More than 26,000 Canadians served on land, at sea and in the air during this bitter conflict in a rugged land so far from home. Sadly, 516 Canadians would lose their lives. The Korean War was an important chapter in Canada’s military history and part of our country’s proud tradition of defending peace and freedom around the world.
