In support of those who've lost someone to suicide....

November 17th asks us to remember the family and friends that are left behind




General Mark Graham (Ret.) & Carol Graham
Lost their sons fighting different battles...

In 2003, their younger son-- who was a pre-med student and also an ROTC scholarship Cadet-- lost his fight with depression and ended his life by suicide. Nine months later, their other son was killed while on patrol in Iraq-- he was warning his platoon of an IED. Since, both General Mark Graham and his wife, Carol, have become advocates of mental health and suicide prevention.
