PRINCE GEORGE, B.C. - Greg Matters and Ryan Seguin met in battle school in 1995, both fresh-faced young soldiers keen to serve their country.
Together they learned the military trade, grew up, became best friends. Matters stood beside Seguin at his wedding as his best man, and he was the godfather of Seguin's children.
On Wednesday, Warrant Officer Seguin handed Memorial Cross medals to the mother and sister of his comrade-in-arms, who died in a confrontation with RCMP on his rural property near Prince George, B.C., a year ago.
