During World War II, Canada joined forces with the United States to create the First Special Service Force—the first and only time both nations would be seamlessly combined in training, equipment and uniform. Although it was only operational for two years, this elite combat unit demonstrated the power of united national forces against a common foe—and consequently became the forerunner to distinguished Canadian and U.S. units including Canada’s Joint-Task-Force 2 and the United States’ Navy Seals, Delta Force and Green Berets
