The Canadian Forces have agreed to a four-year term for an Ottawa dentist who suffered severe nerve damage in combat.
In September, Darrick Parker suffered severe injuries to his left hand and foot after being hit by a grenade during the Battle of the Bulge.
Parker was medically discharged in October and was placed on a 10-month leave from duty.
He returned to work on November 20.
He received treatment and resumed his duties in December.
His lawyer, Robert McInnes, said his client has been in “constant pain” for two years and that the damage to his hand and feet is permanent.
Parkers court case is ongoing.
