Two Quesnel residents will be honoured at Rideau Hall in Ottawa this morning.
Paul and Terry Nichols will receive a meritorious service medal from Governor General Julie Payette.
The ceremony starts at around 7-30 our time.
A total of 48 medals will be presented.
The Nichols are being recognized for their equine-assisted therapy to help veterans as well as for their ride across Canada, a 211-day trip on horseback.
It allowed veterans to connect with Canadians along the way.
Paul is a veteran himself who struggled to come to terms with his experience while serving on a peacekeeping mission in the former Yugoslavia.
