When a CAF member makes the transition from active service to Veteran status, their family does too. The Veteran Family Program is meant to support approximately 1,200 CAF members who medically release each year, as well as approximately 700 military spouses and 900 children impacted by their release and transition into the civilian world.
Veterans & Their Families
The Veteran Family Program extends the Military Family Services Program to medically-released Veterans and their families for a period of two years from the date of release.
‘3B Release’ is a CAF term used to describe the transition process members releasing from the military due to an illness or injury go through. Releasing can be challenging, but even more so when the release is the result of a medical condition. There is no defined timeline to healing and each phase will vary based on individual situations.
To ease transition
The Veteran Family Journal is a resource developed specifically to help ease the transition for medically-releasing Veterans and their families. It is always accessible to you online and in hardcopy at any MFRC.
