A repatriation ceremony will be held this afternoon for two Canadian soldiers killed in Afghanistan.
The bodies of Master Corporal Kristal Giesebrecht and Private Andrew Miller are scheduled to arrive at CFB Trenton, in eastern Ontario, at 2 p.m.
Among those expected to be on hand are Defence Minister Peter MacKay and Chief of Defence Staff, General Walt Natynczyk.
The 34-year-old Giesebrecht and 21-year-old Miller were killed Saturday when the armoured vehicle they were riding in detonated a roadside bomb near Kandahar City.
The two medical technicians were serving with the Task Force Kandahar Health Services Unit.
Their deaths bring to 150 the number of Canadian Forces members to die during the Afghan mission since it began in 2002.
