DND says no to soldier’s walk to raise money for injured veterans | Sizzlin' News | Scoop.it

Less than a year after being lavishly and publicly praised by Defence Minister Peter MacKay for an arduous fundraising walk in aid of injured soldiers, a corporal says she has decided to leave the military after being ordered not to repeat the fundraiser again this summer.



So the 34-year-old single mother, in her eighth year in the military, says she had a choice: Forget about the walk and continue her army career or forget about the career and do the walk.


She has chosen to leave the military early and do the walk. Her career officially ends Aug. 15.
