Sadly, VAC (or equivalent) issues aren't limited to the CAF. Our friends down under complain about the same sort of stuff.

here's anger among some 50,000 Australian veterans who say that after serving their country they were lied to about their compulsory superannuation.

Many years after retiring, they're still paying off what they were led to believe was a loan but turned into a life-time debt.

The Veteran's Affairs Minister has now called an inquiry.
