In honor of Veterans Day, Rhode Island Public Radio is sharing stories from veterans this week. Today, we hear from Jay McBride, a Bristol resident who served in the Coast Guard during the Vietnam War. McBride has found a new way to serve by working with veterans recovering from addiction. He spoke at the VA Medical Center where he volunteers on a daily basis.
He spoke with Rhode Island Public Radio intern Emily Wooldridge, who produced this story.
You can find more stories from our series “RI Veterans’ Voices” here.
Many thanks to the Providence VA and Winfield Danielson, III for helping us connect with the veterans in this series.
