We currently care for around 90,000 widows and 1,900 children and disabled dependants throughout Australia.

VC Ben Roberts-Smith's Australia Day Address
Decorated veteran and Legacy ambassador Ben Roberts-Smith has spoken of Australia's military tradition during the annual Australia Day address.

Speaking in Sydney, the Victoria Cross and Medal for Gallantry recipient said all he had ever wanted to do was be a solider but there have been hurdles to overcome both during and after his defence force service.

VC Recipient Postage Stamps
Today Australia Post unveiled the recipients of the 2015 Australia Post Legends Award, honouring five of Australia’s most gallant and decorated soldiers.

Australia Post will donate $1 to Legacy Australia from selected products purchased from the Legends range.

This year’s Legends Award recognises five Australians who have received the Victoria Cross, the highest honour that can be bestowed for acts of valour “in the presence of the enemy”.

The 2015 Australia Post Legends Award recipients are Keith Payne VC OAM; Mark Donaldson VC; Ben Roberts-Smith VC MG; Daniel Keighran VC and, for the first time in the Awards history, Legends status will be awarded posthumously to Cameron Baird VC MG.

Legacy would like to thank Australia Post for their very generous support and congratulate these very remarkable Australians.


Legacy on 'The Living Room'
For anybody who missed it, here's the link to the very special Christmas episode of The Living Room featuring a very special Legacy family, the lovely Miriam Zariffa and her gorgeous son Isaac who became an overnight media sensation and caused a huge reaction from viewers across the country.
The Legacy segment appears at the very end of the show and left the audience and hosts alike moved to tears.

Unfortunately, little Isaac's wish for Santa was the only one the show was unable to deliver - keep a box of tissues handy!
A special thanks to Network 10 for your generosity and support!

Paint for a Mate Project has hit Bega
Berger is applying fresh coats of colour to 40 homes around Australia as part of the company’s support of Legacy and war widow Mavis Wheeler is the latest to have her home upgraded. Mrs Wheeler lost her husband Leslie as a result of his army service and since moving to Bega from Queensland has had regular visits from Legacy’s Peter Florance. She said Legacy’s support and advice was a real comfort – but there was one phone call that would prove more surprising than most.
