Bruce Moncur was born in Windsor, Ontario, and joined the military reserves in high school, during the summer of 2001. In 2006, he suffered severe injuries during Operation Medusa in a “Friendly fire” incident between Canadian and American troops. After undergoing two brain surgeries and extensive rehabilitation, Moncur was released from the Canadian Forces. To Bruce’s shock Veteran Affairs Canada didn’t see the brain physically as something of value and only paid out for pain and suffering for the loss of 7% of his brain. At the time equating to little more than $30k. This caused Bruce to advocate for himself and through learning the troubles all Veterans experience with severe injury claims with VAC has become one of Canada’s leading Veteran advocates.
