A Canadian Surprise in Arlington National Cemetery
May 2019
When visiting Arlington National Cemetery this memorial Cross of Sacrifice stands in every Commonwealth war cemetery. It commemorates the Americans who served in the Canadian Armed Forces in the First and the Second World War and the Korean War. Recommended to take the trolley tour - this Cemetery is large.

We were looking forward to seeing this monument. Unfortunately it is on a grassy knoll that you are not allowed to walk on. It is very difficult to read the words on the cross because of the distance. There is no sign close to the walkway that we could find that explained what the cross was for.

This was good to see - honoring those brothers and sisters of our united continent. I had not been aware there was Canadian participation tip now. I further researched and found both movies and books relating brave tales of our united WWII efforts.

A Symbol of Allegiance and Patriotism

We visited the Canadian Cross of Sacrifice while visiting Arlington National Cemetery with a colleague who has parents buried there. It was a somber day seeing all of the memorials but also a day of such emotions as times of tragedy and heroism were remembered in my lifetime and of those in times past. We were told this was a tribute to American Citizens who fought for the Canadian Army during the Great War. It is a great token of appreciation and alliance between the two great countries. It’s worth a visit on your tour of Arlington National Cemetery.

As one who holds both Canadian and American citizenship, I was overwhelmed.

This simple yet forceful memorial captures the sacrifice of the Americans and the gratitude of the Canadians.

May it stand forever to continue to honour both

A Fine Diplomatic Gesture

This memorial, right across from the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and the adjoining Amphitheatre, is a fitting tribute from our Canadian neighbors. It celebrates the US soldiers who were part of the Canadian Armed Forces in three wars as a symbol of appreciation for their sacrifice. Tall and simple in design, it stands as a sentinel and reminder that these wars were truly global in nature with the involvement of many nations and numerous men and women.
