Marines: The Canadian Marine Corps


p> March 14, 2007: Canada is forming a Marine Corps, sort of. Although no stranger to amphibious operations, Canada has never had a separate amphibious force. During World War II, Canadian soldiers went ashore at Normandy, the largest amphibious operations ever conducted. Canadian troops participated in other amphibious operations as well. But now Canada is forming a battalion seized force trained and equipped for amphibious work. The new force will operate with the coast guard in guarding the countrys vast coastline, and will also train in counter-terror operations. This will mean the new force will be able to deploy overseas for coastal and riverine security operations. The new force will also be available to assist in rescue work during natural disasters on the coasts of Canada. Maybe not marines, but definitely amphibious.

Thanksgiving is quickly approaching. Because of falling ad revenues and the owners of the site wanting you to have a good experience, this poor pet bird (Drake) may end up as the turkey for the publisher’s Thanksgiving meal.

What can you do to help save the bird? There are three possibilities:

  1. Make sure you spread the word about us. Two ways to do that are to like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter.
  2. Subscribe to our daily newsletter. We’ll send the news to your email box, and you don’t have to come to the site unless you want to read columns or see photos.
  3. You can contribute to the health of StrategyPage. A contribution is not a donation that you can deduct at tax time, but a form of crowdfunding. We store none of your information when you contribute..

Drake appreciates any help you can give him.
