There are financial add ons offered to these members to help make things easier but they are currently under review and will probably change early next year.
- Sep 6, '12 by Silverdragon102Being an army brat admittedly the UK rather than Canada I have to agree and say that the family look after the kids whilst the parent does what is required for their job. I remember when I was 5ish my mother was taken ill and had to be hospitalised. My Father was in transit and the Army couldn't find him to get him back to the UK as he was somewhere in Germany and my sisters and myself had to find relatives to take us until things was settled and sorted

I'm sure things are better now than they were um...very long ago.
