On June 6, 1944, D-Day, 359 Canadians were killed in action on the beaches of Normandy. These men came from communities all across Canada. They lived down your street, attended your school, worked in your businesses. Many were just boys when they went off to war, storming the beach as young as 18.
This year the Juno Beach Centre commemorates their sacrifice by installing 359 Tribute Markers – one for each fallen soldier – on Juno Beach.
Honour a soldier and show your support for the Juno Beach Centre. Sponsor a Tribute Marker today.
