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.”
Subject: Fwd: 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!”
