Bob Bagosy and his family understand what it means to serve their country.  Bob's father was a combat Marine who served in WW2. Bob served in the USMCR Infantry for 6 years, from 1966-1972.  He is the Gold Star Father of OIF / OEF Combat Marine, Sgt. Thomas Bagosy.  Join tonight’s VOW radio hostess, Beth Pennington, and listen as Bob shares his story about his family’s service in the Marine Corps, his son’s deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan, SEMPER FI moments, how his son’s death has changed his life and that of his family, and how TAPS (Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors) has helped the Bagosy family cope with Tommy’s death.
