Recently retired Warrant Officer Roger Perreault is an Afghanistan veteran who was injured by a roadside bomb. In a final act of vindictiveness for speaking out about being denied the critical injury benefit he should be receiving for his injuries, Roger was released June 5th, 2017. That date was two days before the hollow government announcement on Canada’s defence policy that “staff will ensure all pre-release and pension administration is completed, and benefits are in place, before the transition to post-military life.”
The Trudeau Defence Minister was aware when 27 year veteran Warrant Officer (Ret.) Roger Perreault was being released for over a year. Pension Benefits said they needed a ‘release message’ to action his pension. Roger sent his copy and it was refused. Base Petawawa sent them their official copy of the soldiers release message and it was refused also. He was informed the same message could only come from ‘head office’ in Ottawa.
Warrant Officer (Ret.) Roger Perreault is a Canadian hero. He is being treated by his own government worse than a convicted terrorist.
