For­mer sol­dier thank­ful for VAC

PressReader - Tke Channel - For­mer sol­dier thank­ful for VAC
I of­ten read in your pa­per about com­plaints against Vet­er­ans Af­fairs Canada or the man­ner in which VAC han­dle mat­ters. VAC, of course, is at a dis­ad­van­tage, be­cause they can­not nor­mally de­fend them­selves due to pro­vi­sions of the Pri­vacy Act and must re­main si­lent.I can, how­ever, speak of my per­sonal ex­pe­ri­ence with VAC, hav­ing served in the Cana­dian Armed Forces for 42 years, which in­cluded a tour in Kan­da­har, Afghanistan, in 2006.Hav­ing re­tired from the mil­i­tary al­most three years ago, I can re­port that VAC has been ex­tremely help­ful in as­sist­ing me tran­si­tion to civil­ian life and ad­dress­ing some is­sues re­lat­ing to my mil­i­tary ser­vice. I am very thank­ful for the ser­vices VAC has and pro­vides to me through my case man­ager.VAC cares and has done its ut­most to help this for­mer sol­dier! Ran­dall C. Smith, Lieu­tenant-Colonel (Re­tired), Ot­tawa
