Uniting has launched a six-part podcast series, My Life at War, to celebrate and recognise the veterans currently in the provider’s care.
Released yesterday on the 75th anniversary of Remembrance Day, the series features firsthand accounts from WWII veterans receiving aged care from Uniting.
The interviews were conducted by two Uniting staff members, Lee Taylor and Jefferson Spratt, with the series produced over 11 months.
Uniting CEO Tracey Burton says the podcast provides a timely reminder of the important contribution older Australians have made, and continue to make.
“In a year when our elders are enduring a pandemic, it’s more important than ever to remember how incredibly valuable they are to our community,” she said.
“We need to listen to these stories and remind ourselves about the sacrifices they have made and how they helped build and enrich our country.”
You can find the podcast here, and on all major podcasting apps.
