Chilliwack soldiers are joining the honour guard for B.C.’s silver cross families.

Soldiers from Area Support Unit Chilliwack and 39 Canadian Brigade Group will be participating in a memorial service to honour silver cross families on Saturday that follows the second annual Memorial Ride for the Fallen, organized by the 3rd CAV (Canadian Army Veterans) Ubique Unit.

The soldiers will be part of a firing party where they will fire volleys of blank ammunition in honour of each of the fallen soldiers from B.C. (nine in total) who were killed in Afghanistan.

The memorial service is at 2:30 p.m. on Saturday at the cenotaph located at Vedder Road and Keith Wilson Road.

The ceremony is open to anyone wishing to attend.

A reception will follow at the ASU.
