After receiving $10K from Waterford, Graves donates $1K to Memorial Day event

The phone call never came for J. Kevin Graves.
“Hey – it’s Pastor Mike Dillman and I’ve got some raffle tickets if you’d be interested.” A gold star father, Graves always made the purchase not because he hoped of riding away in the shiny new automobile that always lined the stage at the annual Memorial Day event that Dillman organizes to pay tribute to the fallen, but because the money could go a long way in helping keep the memory of his son who was killed in Iraq on July 25, 2006.
Every day is Memorial Day for Graves – a constant reminder that Specialist Joseph A. Graves paid the ultimate sacrifice for his county and that the last time he saw his son was in fact the last time that he saw his son.
