I just found this interesting post that gives some interesting details on JTF2 operations while serving with Task Force K-bar in Afghanistan.

Twenty four Canadian commandos approached under the shadow of darkness. A U.S. gunship watching the activity in the compound below radioed that there were 36 people inside. They figured that it would be a challenge, but that the element of surprise would tip the odds in their favour.
The JTF2 team blasted into the building, but instead of a fight, everyone inside immediately surrendered. And the headcount would run to 53 people, more than double that of the attacking force.

Harward would later profess that his JTF2 team was his first choice for any “direct action” mission.

Hopefully this isn't a repost. LINK

Surprised that they mentioned the "after C but before E letter" unit.... but I'm on the outside looking in.
Still, nice to hear a short tale about Dark Horse guys helping Canadas finest :)
