This podcast episode is produced by award-winning podcast maker Megan Spencer, and explores the military service of Army veteran, Uncle Frank Lampard OAM, co-chair of Aboriginal Veterans South Australia.
Uncle Frank Lampard OAM is a proud Ngarrindjeri Kaurna man and elder and one of the thousands of young Australians called up for national service during the Vietnam War. Training as a medic in the Royal Australian Army Medical Corps, he was posted to Victoria for two years from 1967 to 1969.
Listen as Uncle Frank unpacks his experience of national service, shares stories from his time living in Melbourne and away from country, and gives powerful insights into the recognition and acknowledgment of First Peoples’ military service.
