This series showcases the lives of people across Trafford that have served in our Armed Forces, their families and also those that have worked, or still work, across the emergency services. Working in partnership with Trafford Veterans CIC we listen to the amazing people in our communities that have seen and done astonishing things, faced some terrible struggles, but who have ultimately found comradery, support and comfort as part of the Trafford Veterans family.

Lee Ward – Lee tells us about his 24 year career in the Army, a great story explaining how he used his time wisely learning from the experienced older soldiers, then planning his career progression through an extensive career including joining the Royal Logistics Core, training as a Commando and eventually becoming a training instructor. Lee also shares the struggle he had transitioning into Civilian life and how he now supports young people in pastoral care.
