Casualties of War.......Canadians serving with the U.S. Marines

During the VietNam War it was known that many Canadians enlisted into the Armed Forces of the United States. This page is dedicated to some of these brave young men, the men who served with Honor in the United States Marine Corps and didn't return.

Accurate statistics were difficult to verify as many Canadians who served with the US Military Forces listed US addresses as their home of record, so on the casualty reports that followed they were assumed to be American. This list was compiled from written and verbal information obtained through official and non official sources.

The men listed below as Canadians, include, those born in Canada, Naturalized Canadian Citizens, and those who had at least one Canadian parent and qualified for Canadian or Dual Citizenship.

Among the Marines listed below is the son [ LCpl. Richard Dextraze, who was awarded the Silver Star Medal and two Purple Heart awards] of a Canadian General Jacques A. Dextraze who became the Canadian Armed Forces Chief of Staff. Also, among the casualties, three Canadian who's bodies were not recovered, LCpl. Jonathan Kmetyk *, 1st Lt William Marshall Price *, and Joseph Howard Reeves *.

Six Marines, of the many who served with the 7th Marine Regiment did not return, LCpl Patrick Dearborn*** and LCpl James Nicholson*** of "Mike" Company, Pfc Robert Harold Kunkel *** of "Lima" Company 3rd Battalion, Pfc Donald Charles McNac *** of "Bravo" Company, Pfc Edward Gerald Sharpe *** of "Delta" Company, 1st Battalion, Pfc David Michel Hann *** and LCpl Steven Joseph Scott*** of "Hotel" Company, 2nd Battalion, 7th Marines.
