Veteran News & Views is the only program of its kind in central Missouri and one of the few in the nation. The goal of the show is to share the stories of veterans from every living era, both good and bad. Each show focuses on a single veteran, sharing the good and bad of his or her experience. In addition, there is discussion of current events and issues of particular interest to veterans, their families, and anyone interested in the world of veterans.
Veteran News & Views is co-hosted by Stephen Gaither, employed by the Veterans Administration for over 40 years, and Jeffrey Hoelscher, public affairs officer at Harry S. Truman Memorial Veterans’ Hospital.
The show can be found every Tuesday, 9:00-10:00 AM, and archived online at KOPN.org.
