I had the most green moments of my life for a while there. I didn't realize that the majority of the people on that ship are nauseous most of the time. I just thought anybody out there obviously doesn't have that problem. Why would you go do that otherwise, right?
So yes, if you haven't had an opportunity, I would really encourage you to take that on.

Yes. The submarine, I'm still...but anyway. You have such a high level of respect when you have a chance to really engage, at least a little bit.
I have one more thing. We're here to study service delivery. There's both National Defence and Veterans Affairs, and we're trying to develop that seamless transition. You mentioned how frustrating it is when someone's injury has been determined and assessed, they know what it is, and then they go to VAC, where it's reassessed...and they said they don't. We've heard witnesses from both directions, that they were released to VAC way too soon, that they weren't ready, and then of course the other situation.
Do you see a way that this could be resolved? I still don't understand who makes that final decision. If it's National Defence, should it be both sides coming to a decision together —i.e., everything's in place, the house ready for someone with no legs, they're not addicted to anything? I'm wondering what your perspective is, because you have that experience.
