Jacob Andrews Remembered & Recognized

Sep 4, 2012

On Tuesday's Central Standard, we’re joined by Laurie Turner, the mother of the late military Specialist Jacob Andrews. She was on the program last year, mere months after her son took his own life.

Time cannot heal all wounds.

Not when a mother is without her son. A one-year old boy without a father. Not when a young man’s life ends after losing a battle with PTSD. But now a year later, we'll hear about her mission to honor the late Kansas City soldier.
