Remembrance Day 2015
November 2015
Legacy asks that families be remembered today.

As the nation pauses at 11am on Wednesday, November 11, to remember those who have sacrificed their lives in service to Australia, Legacy asks that people also remember the families who continue on without them.

Since Federation more than 102,000 Australians have died in war and many more have died subsequently from injuries sustained during their service.

For every serving Australian who risks everything, a family does the same.
Every time a member of the Australian Defence Force is killed or injured a family pays an enduring price as well.

Today Legacy assists around 90,000 families across the nation, helping them with a range of support to ensure they can thrive despite their loss.

If you would like to assist please go to

Congratulations Thales Australia
Congratulations to our long-standing supporters Thales Australia for winning the international project to build over 1000 Australian-designed, blast-proof armoured vehicles worth over $1.5 billion.

The Hawkei, which provides unparalleled protection against landmines, roadside bombs and gunfire, will be built at the Thales plant in Bendigo. The production of the vehicles will create 170 jobs in Bendigo and another 60 jobs in Victoria.

In a world of conflicts where improvised bombs play a major threat, the new vehicle needed to be light enough to be carried into battle un...der a helicopter but heavy enough for those inside to survive a massive explosion.
From everybody at Legacy, we would like to congratulate Thales for winning this hard-fought international contract.

We are very proud of Thales and the wonderful work they do producing equipment to help save the lives of our veterans and bring them home safely to their families.


Kiss and Legacy Australia join for Kiss Roadie for a day
For more than a decade, legendary rock band KISS has worked passionately with several programs in the US assisting returned servicemen and women.

KISS are keen to continue this very valuable work whilst in Australia and today, are pleased to announce they will be doing so on their national tour – courtesy of Legacy Australia.

In the US, KISS are active supporters of the Wounded Warrior Project, which is a non-profit organisation assisting men & women who have incurred service connected injuries, and the Hiring Our Heroes program, a US initiative to help veterans, transitioning service members, and military spouses find meaningful employment.

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.
