South Australia has achieved the milestone of being the first state to recognise Veterans’ Families Day.

15 May is now a day that formally acknowledges current and former serving Australian Defence Force Families and the contributions and personal sacrifices they make, it also included those families who have lost loved ones as a result of their Service. Every year, South Australia will recognise Veterans’ Families Day to acknowledge the strength and resilience of the spouses, partners, and children who support our Veterans each and every day. Veterans’ families are the life blood of the Defence community, and all too often we forget the sacrifices they make to ensure that their family unit remains strong. This day is special for us here at Legacy because we as an organisation has spent 100 years serving the families of our veterans, we acknowledge the importance of recognising the contributions that they make in supporting their partners who serve.
