Graham David Woody

Fallen Hero’s Hometown and State: MO City, TX

Branch of Service: U.S. Army

Rank: Sergeant

Graham graduated from TX A&M University and decided to enlist, as opposed to entering the Army as an officer. He said it would make him a better officer beginning like most other people. After boot camp, he immediately deployed for a 10 month stint in Afghanistan where he was selected for the Commander’s security force. He achieved numerous medals of honor.

Graham’s strongest attribute was one of loyalty. He had a thirst for knowledge and truly was “multi-faceted” (read Shakespeare, wrote poetry and was a body builder). He stood true to his morals and values. He was looked up to by his 3 younger siblings and helped teach his little sister how to drive. He had a quirky sense of humor and could cheer anyone up! He was both sensitive and loving.

Graham lived by the quote, “Live life, don’t let life live you!” He truly believed in looking deeply into the essence of each person and loving them for who they were. As his mom, I only hope I leave half the legacy Graham left in his short 26 years.
