EP – 58 Bonus Show, Teaching Service, and Remembrance

A bonus conversation with Lee Shimbel

This great conversation with Lee explores how a grandfather’s example of service teaches the grandchildren valuable lessons about helping others. We also discuss how Lee and the family positively install closely held family values to the upcoming generation.

Lee serves as director of the Brisbane Legacy group (https://www.legacy.com.au/brisbane/BrisbaneLegacy). This group serves the people of Australia by looking after the family of veterans. Do your self a service and review this fantastic organization and if you are moved to do so, please contribute by contacting [email protected].

Legacy is a charity providing service to Australian families suffering financially and socially after the incapacitation or death of a spouse or parent, during or after their Defence Force service. At Brisbane Legacy, we currently care for more than 6,700 widows and 250 dependents of the 52,000 widow(er)s and 1,845 children and disabled dependants throughout Australia.
