Military chief pledges pension details to be sorted before wounded soldiers released

Chuck Lamarre
Lt.-Gen. Chuck Lamarre, who oversaw Joint Task Force Afghanistan in 2011, is the Canadian Armed Forces’ new chief of military personnel. He says the military will ensure pensions for wounded soldiers are in place before they are released from service.

The new head of military personnel says injured soldiers whose pension and financial paperwork isn’t complete won’t be released until they’re set up to be paid. But officials at DND were unable to provide clear details on the policy.
