RSL DefenceCare provided ongoing counselling for Leone, whose son was deployed in Afghanistan for seven months.
The soldier is a single parent and his mum needed to step in to look after her grandchildren - a 14 year old boy and a 9 year old girl - on a full-time basis.
Counselling has continued and was extended to the soldier as well.
Please give what you can so veterans and their family members, like Leone are looked after like they deserve to be.
