Mary Gauthier is a country musician who recently said that she wasn't sober until she was 27, and couldn't write until she was 30. 

Twenty-five years later, she's an unlikely voice for veterans. Gauthier's newest album includes songs co-written with veterans. The songs explore a range of subjects, including the service of women in uniform, and the pain of loss. Gauthier will perform in Rochester Tuesday (4/24) night at Lovin Cup, but first she's on Connections with Evan Dawson, Tuesday, April 24 at 1 p.m. on & AM 1370.

This Connections program is part of Veterans Connections, an initiative designed to help bridge military and veteran needs with community support and awareness. WXXI and the Little Theatre have pulled together a Veterans Affairs Task Force to create a community platform, raise awareness about veteran issues, and connect veterans with resources.
