SAN BRUNO, CA (KGO) – As Americans remember fallen soldiers this Memorial Day, the father of a soldier killed in Iraq is paying tribute to his son.
The gold star father is continuing his son’s mission. “It just not the right order of things,” Kevin Graves says. “You’re not supposed to live past your children.”
It is a reality Graves is still getting used to. His son, Specialist Joey Graves, died in Iraq four years ago. Things have not been the same since then.
“We enjoyed each other. We enjoyed the company of being together. We were pretty much inseparable,” he says.
