Major General Mark Graham and his wife, Carol, sit for portraits after speaking about the deaths of their two sons in their Fort Carson home in Colorado Springs, Colo.  Their son, Second Lt. Jeff Graham was killed by a roadside bomb in Iraq just months after their other son, ROTC Cadet Kevin Graham, committed suicide in his apartment.  Since Kevin’s suicide, the Grahams have been outspoken advocates for suicide prevention.  The article discusses a marked increase in military suicides and the Grahams’ involvement in suicide prevention and education.
