In no way knocking anyone'* service to their country, but when I picture the Canadian Navy, I picture a bunch of 16 foot Alumicraft fishing boats out on the lakes......

"These Walleyes are ours, eh!"

Funny, the Marines are by far the smallest branch in terms of personnel, yet we're holding our own in the poll. So much for statistics.

hehe I am just kidding. That is actually one of your super carriers. We do have a Navy it is small but mighty. Funny thing....we don't have enough people in our navy to man one supercarrier. Any, here is a pic of my actual ship funny enough parked in Savanah Georgia last summer. That was a great port visit. From what I was told I had a great time....

We have had ships in the persian gulf since the 1991 Iraq/Kuwait war. Not to mention we are the only other allied nation with the states to be capable of being completely integrated with your carrier battle group. Sometimes it is fun playing with the big guys.
