It was a year ago this week, two Canadian soldiers were targeted in deadly attacks.
Warrant Officer Patrice Vincent was murdered in a hit and run in a plaza parking lot in Quebec.
The RCMP called it a terrorist act by an ISIL-inspired terrorist.
Just two days later, Corporal Nathan Cirillo was shot from behind by a lone gunman, while standing guard at the National War Memorial in Ottawa.
A memorial service is being held in Ottawa Thursday morning. It will include a 21-gun salute.
