Veterans’ Voice Radio’s goal is to help veterans and active members of the military identify and apply for local, state and federal benefits, along with programs they may qualify for. Housing, education and training for careers are just some of the various topics that are discussed during the show. Guests from numerous Veterans agencies will help vets navigate through the process of applying for and receiving benefits, and help answer any other questions veterans may have about these subjects.
Each week, we feature a Veteran’s Voice segment to start the show. It consists a veteran telling their own story about their experiences in the military.
We are looking for veterans to appear on the show, whether through call-ins or an in-studio discussion. If you are interested in this great opportunity to share your story and help fellow veterans, please contact Gregg Brasso at 781-985-1551 or at Veteransvoiceradio@gmail.com
“As a Gold Star family, I realized at an early age that veterans and their family issues carry on long after the wars have ended. After a career in high tech sales and marketing, I have spent the last 8 years helping veterans identify and apply for local, state, and federal programs and benefits they have earned. While working as an outreach specialist with the Veterans Upward Bound program at UMASS Boston, I helped veterans identify military transfer credits, GI Bill and Yellow Ribbon benefits, and help plan an educational path that will lead to post secondary education and onto meaningful full time careers. The Veterans’ Voice radio show will address these and other veterans issues and to provide direction to benefit application.”
