We remember Corporal Tyler Crooks of Ontario who died on March 20, 2009. Learn more about him on his service to Canada on the Canadian War Memorial.

Canada's engagement in Afghanistan was our country's most significant military operation in recent years. More than 40,000 Canadian Armed Forces members would serve in the Afghanistan theatre of operations between 2001 and 2014. It was very dangerous duty, and Ontario's Corporal Tyler Crooks of the 3rd Battalion, Royal Canadian Regiment Battle Group lost his life alongside a fellow soldier as a result of an improvised explosive device blast while on foot patrol in the Zhari District, on March 20, 2009. He was 24.
