Response to Camp Gagetown 1956-1984.
I was posted to Gagetown with 2 Sig Sqn during this time (summer 1966/67).
I now am afflicted with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)to which there is a link as evidenced by medical opinion.
A claim via Merchant Law (class action), a grass roots Gagetown web site, and communication to DVA were to no avail.A gratuitous $20,000 was allowed but only if proven carcinogenic cause was shown (leukemia, etc).
So, here I sit, puffer in hand 2X daily.
Thank you very much DND, Govt of Canada, DVA.
So much for 37 years service.
- Thank you. - Christopher Furlotte on Oct 12, 2009, 10:30 PM
