    VAC wait times

    Took like 5 days about. However, I think you can look in your "payments" section (or whatever its called, can't access my VAC account right now) and if you have a new payment coming up, means it was a favourable decision.

    VAC wait times

    Question for those who have received their lump sum. Did it show up in “payment history” on “my vac” account before showing up in your bank account? I.e to let you know it was coming?

    Looking for an old topic on army.ca

    I tried searching on google and here on army.ca but no luck thus far. I remember reading on army.ca back in 2011 when I was in Afghanistan about an attack happening on a US FOB because a soldier had put up pictures of their FOB on his Facebook account. The US soldiers had put up a significant...

    VAC wait times

    Did you submit the request by mail or by your VAC account? I got my form in my VAC account inbox yesterday and submitted it online. I wonder if the 6 week guideline is only for those using snail mail.

    VAC and Tinnitus

    So as I mentioned on another thread application was completed and I was able to see the results, based on the monthly amount I am assuming it is assessed at 5%. I don't understand how come it is not 10% since I even have a prescription for a masking device and I sent the prescription to VAC...

    VAC wait times

    Just to give some hope to people, my application for tinnitus was completed today, although I still don't have the decision letter yet so I don't know the results and its too early to celebrate. But my application was submitted on 5 mar 19, so 34 weeks, which is still longer than the 24 weeks of...

    Artillery callsigns vs other trades

    Was wondering if anyone knew the reasoning why the DCO (2IC) of an artillery regiment's callsign was 98 instead of 9A like the infantry or armoured? Same question for the Ops O actual being 95 seagull instead of 9B. Tried looking it up in B-GL 371-004 but no joy. Thanks

    Unveiling of New CANSOFCOM Dress Uniform

    When you've done what he has done in his career, then you can make fun of him for his ND. It is easy to be the critic of the man in the arena. MGen Rouleau immediately owned up to his mistake and called the CDS directly and then advised all the members in his command, a lot of others probably...

    3 PPCLI OP APOLLO

    Hello everyone, I'm currently doing some research, and I was wondering if anyone on here knows if 3 PPCLI BG in 2002 on OP APOLLO actually saw combat (TICs, raids etc)? None of my research so far has proven to give me concrete examples of 3 PPCLI coming into contact with the enemy. I'm aware...

    VAC Return to Lifetime Pensions Discussion

    Why would this only apply to retired vets? What about current serving members who were injured and received a disability award?

    Anodized medals

    Just wondering if anyone on here gets their medals dipped or anodized? I've seen a few older NCOs with really shiny medals (particularly the cpsm and UN medals). Just wondering what people's thoughts are.

    Has anyone come across new terminology for officers? As far as I understand: Subordinate Officer : OCdt; Junior Officers: 2Lt, Lt, Capt; Senior Officers: Maj, Lcol, Col; GO/FO: Bgen + But I now I keep hearing the term superior officers for Majs and Lcols, and senior officers for Col and up...
