Hello and good day.
I am in a desperate situation.
I injured my shoulder while on duty a year ago and the pain still comes and goes when I do certain physical activities or motions.
When the incident happened, I noted the time, date and witnesses. So I filled out a CF98 and got the signatures of the 2 witnesses, the signatures of my immediate COC.
I received a copy of the CF98 from our BOR a couple of months back. Only thing missing was my CO's signature.
Recently I received my disclosure booklet and have been informed I will be medically released in May 2016.
For the last year I have been doing my best to go through my COC as well as my BOR to inquire about my CO signing my CF98. However to no avail.
Apparently they don't know "where it went' or "who has hold of it" now
My Caseworker and VAC has been hounding me to get a copy of the CF98 with the CO's signature on it. But I just don't know what to tell them at this point. I pretty much feel powerless in this situation.
To make matters worst, our CO is leaving in 2 weeks and he has a Change Of Command Parade on the weekend of 23-24 April 2016 I believe.
So I have tried going through my COC again this past week but it seems like they are unsure of the situation themselves.
I am now desperate enough to just go up to my current CO when I see him in the hallways and just flat out approach him about my CF98 situation. I don't feel like I have any other avenue of choices.
^ Please guys. I need your advice. Would this be wise for me to do??? Just break out of the COC protocol and approach a very High Ranking member like that?
I only have about this month left to figure my CF98 issue and the CO is leaving the Unit soon.
What other courses of action(s) can you guys recommend me?? If May 2016 passes and I am out of the unit down the road... and my CF98 has not been signed by the CO... Would VAC and my Caseworker do their best to help me when I am figuring out my life on civie street???
Sorry for all the questions but I am very stressed out right now due to this situation.
Thank you and have a great day,
