xx Subscribing/Donating

January 30, 2019, 21:57:35 by AbdullahD
Top of the evening Mike or staff

I just tried subscribing via e-transfer and it failed on me via the alternate to PayPal option.

If you want to confirm who or where I can send it to, I will do so shortly. Been here to long not to pitch in.

Abdullah

P.s reason for the post is I see two different e transfer addresses and the alternate subscribe page failed so wanted to be sure that the addresses were up to date before I sent.

xx Feds Cut Reimbursements for Military Health Care

October 08, 2019, 19:46:58 by Haggis
I haven't seen this posted elsewhere on the site.

The Liberal government quietly cut the reimbursements it pays out to civilian hospitals that provide services to CAF members putting them on the same schedule and the same level of service as out-of-province patients.

xx Man arrrested in death of MCpl Martin Brayman

Man arrested in Fla. death of Canadian Armed Forces member
Published Wednesday, September 11, 2019 11:00AM EDT
A man has been arrested in the death of a Canadian Armed Forces master corporal working in Florida.

Master Cpl. Martin Brayman died Monday in Panama City after a violent assault the night before, a spokesperson for the CAF confirmed to CTVNews.ca.

“His next of kin have been notified and the CAF continues to support them during this difficult time,” they wrote in an email. “Our deepest sympathies are with his family and friends.”

The Bay County Sheriff’s Office was in communication with the CAF on Tuesday, when they said they had made an arrest. A suspect name has not been released.

Brayman reportedly worked as a NORAD aerospace control operator in Panama City, where he was assigned this year. Brayman joined the Armed Forces in 2006 and was deployed in 2008 on Operation ARTEMIS to help stop terrorism, and Operation CALUMET in 2017 to support a peacekeeping operation in the Sinai Peninsula.
