serving member in the canadian forces, deployed on operations to the middle east in 2012 diagnosed with PTSD in 2014 deemed fit to return to active duty in 2015, cause of injury was in direct relation to operation of motor vehicle in combative areas. chain of command was fully aware of my history and supporting medical documents were reviewed before deploying again. it was my understanding that i would never be asked to act as a driver in combative areas again. once deployed and settled into a job withen my limitations i was moved to another location with the added task of driving. i returned from deployment and found myself worse off than before. i am now so heavily medicated it is no longer safe for me to drive in Canada.my civilian drivers licence was suspended. were my rights infringed during my second deployment? this has most likely ended my military career and any help would be welcomed. thank you mam or sir.
