Iraqi War Claims Lives on US Soil

A Belchertown, Massachusetts family will be featured on tonight’s broadcast of the public television documentary series Frontline. Joyce and Kevin Lucey lost their son Jeffrey last year. Jeffrey, a reservist in the US Marine Corps, committed suicide in the family’s home, several months after serving a 12-month tour of duty in Iraq and struggling with post traumatic stress disorder. We spoke with Jeff’s mother, Joyce, and his sister, Debby.

Jeff Lucey’s family will be featured tonight on the public television series Frontline, examining the psychological cost of war. The program, The Soldier’s Heart, airs at 9:30 pm tonight on WGBY, channel 57 in Springfield.
