Gold Star Families Share on Veterans’ Voices

Live, Local Talk Show Spotlights Gold Star Families:  Veterans’ Voices airs live Monday, July 20, 7:00 p.m.

It’s the exclusive club that no one wants to join.

On July 20, Contra Costa County’s live talk show Veterans’ Voices will bring you the very personal stories of Gold Star families – those who have lost a spouse, child, sibling or other family member in the line of service.

For someone who has lost a loved one who was serving our country, there is huge comfort in knowing you’re not making the journey alone.  However, it can be difficult to find the connections to others who understand what you’re going through.  Veterans’ Voices co-host Kevin Graves has walked that path, having lost his son Joey almost a decade ago.   Kevin will be joined by a panel of other Gold Star family members.   You’ll hear from spouses, parents and siblings – each with a different perspective on their loss and their healing.

This very special episode of Veterans’ Voices is not just for Gold Star families, but also for friends, service members and others who might not know how to support someone going through such a difficult loss.  And we welcome calls, emails and online chats from our TV and online audience members who want to share their own stories or ask questions.

Veterans’ Voices will be broadcast live online and on CCTV on Monday, July 20, from 7:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m. The show is a joint production of the Contra Costa County Veterans Service Office and Contra Costa Television (CCTV.)  It is underwritten by a grant from the California Department of Veterans Affairs.  “Veterans’ Voices” airs the third Monday of each month at 7:00 p.m. on CCTV, which can be found on Comcast Channel 27, Astound Channel 32 and AT&T U-Verse Channel 99 throughout Contra Costa County.  Catch prior shows or watch the show live online by visiting:
