    Anybody think new budget will have anything at all about veterans?

    Well here we go, we are about to find out where veterans sit on the priorities that this sitting gov't was voted in on.  I am not optimistic since their only priority seems to be refugees. What say you?

    Veterans Transition Netwrok

    Anyone have int on this?  Just read about it in Legion Mag,  they are really pushing it (I guess since they are funding it).  Seems like they (RCL) are trying to get into the MH game a little late, since DND has OTSSC and VAC has OSI Clinics,  they don't stand much of a chance getting anymore...

    Prior Years of Service of Former Canadian Forces Members

    For those now in the Public Service,  your military service time will be used for the purpose of leave credit calculations.  Don't think they did this to make anyone happy,  they lost a grievance in 2010 to the RCMP and a few vets decided to take them also.  This is regardless of whether or not...
