A Belated Wedding Present
A private contacted the Office seeking help in speeding up his release from the CF. He had applied for a release in July 2003 and was told that it would take about a year to complete. The private wanted to get out faster for two main reasons: his working environment was creating personal hardship and he was separated from his newly-wed wife.
The investigator learned that the proper release papers hadn’t actually been submitted until the fall of 2003. Moreover, disciplinary actions involving the member had slowed down the release process. The investigator followed up with the private’s unit and with Canadian Forces Recruiting Group in Borden. Thanks to the investigator’s persistence and the Recruiting Group’s cooperation, the member was released from the Canadian Forces at the end of January.
