Our military men and women deserve a better deal

Cathy Richardson has forwarded a message concerned with military pensions. It’s a topic that I’ve thought about from time to time in the context of military history and the soldiers who do the fighting.

I’m also reminded of a Nov. 10, 2013 Globe and Mail article entitled: “Veterans plan silent protests of government policies.”

Forwarded message:

Subject: Fwd: Consider This:

Consider this…….

No one has been able to explain to me why young men and women

serve in the Canadian Military for up to 20 years, risking their lives & limbs,

protecting our freedom, and only get about 40% of their pay on Retirement.

While Politicians hold their political positions in the safe confines of the

Nation’s Capital, protected by these same men and women, and receive full-pay on

Retirement …. after serving only two terms.

It just does not make any sense!!

If each person who receives this, will forward it on to 20 people, in 3 days,

most people in Canada , will have got the message … including the likes of

PM Stephen Harper, Senators Mike Duffy & Pamela Wallin, as well as all those

other politicians who have NOT yet been caught “double dipping”!!

This is one message that really should be passed around.

I just passed it on ….. will you?

“If you choose not to pass it on, you still have made a choice,

and these brave Canadian Heroes have given you that right!”
