Standing on Guard Pt 2
Veterans from this region and across the country have been speaking out about the treatment they say they're receiving at the hands of Veterans Affairs Canada.
Long delays, overwhelming paperwork, and breaches of personal security are just some of the complaints ex-military personel have been leveling at the agency.
Even the military ombudsman, Pat Stogran, has spoken out, saying it appears as though Veterans Affairs will go to great lengths NOT to help people receive their benefits.
Last week on Maritime Magazine, Bob Murphy profiled one ex-soldier with post-traumatic stress disorder. Danny McIntyre was one of the first Canadian soldiers to go to Afghanistan. He now calls Veterans Affairs the "nemesis" of his life.
On this show Bob speaks with a spokeswoman from Veterans Affairs about those complaints.
And we hear the story of Second World War vet and his wife who had tp spend their final years apart.
