Audible Editor Reviews

"This vital book is a stirring call for action to better aid American soldiers who struggle alone with depression - and civilians who suffer from our most stigmatized disease as well." (New York Times Sunday Book Review)

Publisher's Summary

The unforgettable story of a military family that lost two sons - one to suicide and one in combat - and channeled their grief into fighting the armed forces’ suicide epidemic.

Major General Mark Graham was a decorated two-star officer whose integrity and patriotism inspired his sons, Jeff and Kevin, to pursue military careers of their own. His wife, Carol, was a teacher who held the family together while Mark's career took them to bases around the world.

When Kevin and Jeff die within nine months of each other - Kevin commits suicide and Jeff is killed by a roadside bomb in Iraq - Mark and Carol are astonished by the drastically different responses their sons’ deaths receive from the Army. While Jeff is lauded as a hero, Kevin’s death is met with silence, evidence of the terrible stigma that surrounds suicide and mental illness in the military. Convinced that their sons died fighting different battles, Mark and Carol commit themselves to transforming the institution that is the cornerstone of their lives.

The Invisible Front is the story of how one family tries to set aside their grief and find purpose in almost unimaginable loss.

    "A must"

    For anyone currently or in the past having served in the military, this is a must read. MG. Graham and Carol deserve pray for their strength and your continued support for this cause. If leaders in our military want to be taken seriously that suicide matters to them it got a set aside time to stop and learn about the history of suicide and our ranks currently and this book does just that.
