Ben Roberts Smith is one of Australia's mosdt decorated veterans, he proudly wears the Victoria Cross when ANZAC Day arrives each year, but there's an issue close to Ben's Heart that he hopes more Australians can get on board and help solve.

 Ben is appearing in this weekend's edition of SA Weekender (Channel 7 Sunday 5:30pm), telling Michael Keelan about his Adelaide connections, including his family's residence at Jolly's boathouse on the banks of the Torrens.

He also discovers he has a family history of military involvement with some of his ancestors amongst the first to sign up when World War One arrived.

Ben says he will be attending a dawn service on Tuesday and encourages everyone to pay their respects to those who sacrificed their lives for the safety and freedom of others, but says we can help veterans now by giving them employment and purpose when they finally leave the services.
