Sea what I mean folks
Bigrex, some people would of accepted that argument by the board (and probably many have) and would of limped away in total disbelief, but accepting the decision as gospel.
Best advice:
You're your best advocate.

It is true. I was injured during part ship hands, but was initially denied because bringing the ship alongside isn't in the trade description, so they stated that even though I was on ship at sea, I was not "on duty". That was overturned at appeal.

Trooper, they kicked 6 off duty guys out of the forces (I understand why), but come on, now you have this poor sailor thinking to him or herself well when am I on or off duty.
You are dammed if you do/dammed if you don't.
I was in full uniform and injured with all the evidence one needs and medical documents to support my case, but yet.....

A year later, a review panel denied him again, concluding the former sailor was not on duty or in the performance of any service-related activities at the time of the assault in 1988.

See what I mean, double standards, picking and choosing.

You are on duty 24/7, this was clearly demonstrated this week; and we all witnessed what happens to one's career if out of line, in or out of uniform.
So, why award someone 1/5 for an injury and state you were not on duty at the time, therefor we are withholding 4/5th?
Doesn't make any sense...but who am I to judge VRAB.
Any advice, or am I just plane wrong...People! This isn't the military, you can point out my faults, I don't mind and quite frankly, I like to hear peoples opinions....
They are like A...Holes, everyone has one...anyway, a lot of news this week! Lot of us are all probably scratching our noggins at this moment.



As it stands today in order to qualify for a disability benefit from Veterans Affairs Canada, you need be able to show that the condition or disability is related to your service.

After what has transpired over the week, I am thinking about a Ministerial review of my case.
I was injured full stop, in uniform and there is no two ways of getting around this now.

Who's on duty?
We are all on duty! Even when you shed that "jersey" uniform, your still a trained CF member.

Finally resolution on my Reconsideration Letter.
Reassessment complete.
All I can say is, "thank god that this is finally over!"
I smiled today and shed a tear at the same time oddly enough.
Fighting a system that puts people in tears is incomprehensible.
But today I smiled, this could be a good sign that more good things for the troops are to come.

Now to keep an eye on my Vac account for the next 112 days, maybe more, maybe less, but progress to say the least.

Step 3
Your assessment / reassessment is at the decision making level. All your supporting documentation was received on February 24, 2017. We strive to provide a decision within 16 weeks, however, we are currently experiencing a higher than normal volume of requests.

Oddly enough my VAC account shows that a re-assessment of said condition is being reassessed; date stamped 31 January 2017, HOPE!!!.
It may of been triggered by my intuition of knowing how the system of denial is burdened by the use of money, so even prior to the decision I may of inadvertently triggered a reassessment of my condition.
Wow.
