One of the benefits of a deployment is the extra money (Okay the ONLY benefit of a deployment is the extra money) and they give out a medal too.
Each deployed CF member receives benefits such as a deployment bonus, separation expenses (if the CF member is married or equivalent to married or has children) and in certain cases, danger pay.
So, my hubby saved up all his money during his six-month deployment and bought himself something special.
A home theatre system!
The great thing about that is we can all benefit…if only I could figure out which one of the 5 remote controls turns it on!
