Cpl Nathan Cirillo, 24, fell in the line of duty today at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in downtown Ottawa as he got shot twice by a gunman.

RIP


Cpl Cirillo, a father of a young son, was a reservist and member of the Argyll and Sutherland Highlander of Canada, a reserve infantry regiment based in Hamilton, Ontario.

Cpl Cirillo was part of the group of soldiers who volunteered for ceremonial sentry duties at the Canadian War Memorial.

The gunman was later shot dead at Parliament Hill.

A decorated soldier who participated in the Somalia battle immortalized by Hollywood blockbuster “Black Hawk Down” was reportedly found dead in his Georgia home earlier this month. Retired Command Sgt. Maj. Robert Gallagher, 52, died of natural causes as a result of a heart condition, the Army Times reports. He served as the command sergeant major for the Army’s Wounded Warrior Program, but had extensive experience in major combat operations, including Operation Just Cause in Panama and with Task Force Ranger in Mogadishu, Somalia, which was later made famous by the 2001 film.
“You know, I don’t say this lightly, but Bob is probably one of, probably the best soldier I ever served with, retired Col. Greg Gadson told the newspaper. “That man really cared about soldiers.”
Born in Bayonne, N.J., Gallagher joined the Army in 1981 and later earned several awards and decorations, including a Silver Star, two Purple Hearts and two Bronze Stars. He earned the Silver Star in 2002 during Operation Iraqi Freedom as troops advanced from Kuwait to Baghdad, when he suffered a leg wound but continued to direct his men.
