OMBUDSMAN VISITS GARRISON:

OMBUDSMAN VISITS GARRISON: Canada’s Veterans Ombudsman Guy Parent visited Garrison Petawawa on on Jan. 26 to reassure not only veterans of the military and the RCMP but those currently serving that he is listening and will do what he can to ensure there are no longer gaps in the benefits and services they can access once their time in uniform is done.

“There is life after service and you should have been proud to have served,” said Parent, who has been the ombudsman since 2010. Pointing to the last federal budget, Parent said veterans’ concerns are being heard. The disability award has been increased to $360,000, while the increased income eligibility exemption for the Last Post Fund has gone from $12,000 to $36,000.
