Major General Mark Graham retired from the US Army on August 1, 2012 after almost thirty-five years of service. His final position was as the Director (G-3/5/7) U.S. Army Forces Comm& since Sept. 18, 2009. In this position, he oversaw the plans, operations & training for Army forces (active & reserve component) stationed in the Continental United States & ensured conventional forces were prepared for worldwide deployment & combat.


Major General Graham & his wife, Carol, are tireless champions of military & civilian efforts to promote mental health & suicide-prevention awareness, & to eliminate the stigma surrounding mental health care. To honor the memory of their two sons, 2LT Jeff Graham who was killed by a roadside bomb in Iraq in February 2004, & their son Kevin a Senior Army ROTC cadet who died by suicide in June 2003 while studying to be an Army Doctor at the University of Kentucky, the Grahams established the Jeffrey C. & Kevin A. Graham Memorial Fund to provide the “Question, Persuade, Refer” suicide prevention program at the University of Kentucky.

The Grahams were instrumental in establishing - Jeffrey & Kevin Graham Memorial Endowed Lectureship in Psychology for the study of depression & suicide prevention at Cameron University, in Lawton, Oklahoma. as well as “Jeff & Kevin Graham Memorial Crisis Hotline” & "Jeffrey & Kevin Graham Support Services".
