DISCOVERY BAY, Calif. (AP) — A Northern California father is honoring his slain soldier-son by joining the military.
Kevin Graves of Discovery Bay recently signed up for the State Military Reserves as a tribute to his 21-year-old son, Joey, who died while serving in Iraq four years ago.
The elder Graves says he feels closer to his son by participating in the military and military events. He's spoken at rallies, attended memorials and visited soldiers who served with Joey. The efforts also help him cope.
Graves raised Joey as a single father.
He says his entry into the reserves lets him carry out his son's mission. The 53-year-old Graves will work with national guardsmen as a chaplain's assistant one weekend a month and one week a year.
