Background

In 2010 Graham retired from the Coast Guard and settled in beautiful Giles County after 27 years of service.  He resides on a small farm in Campbellsville with his wife, Jennifer, and children; the entire family is engaged in various volunteer and ministry activities throughout middle-TN.  When Graham isn't making sawdust in the woodshop he's either planting, harvesting, or mending fences.


Captain Graham Stowe (USCG, Ret) left his boyhood home of Carteret County, NC to attend the US Coast Guard Academy, graduating with an engineering degree and earning a commission in 1987.   During his Coast Guard career he served in a variety of executive and senior staff positions.  He served five shipboard tours of duty and commanded two cutters, primarily focussing on counter-drug and counter-migrant operations in the Caribbean, as well as many Search and Rescue cases in the Pacific from Alaska to Guam.  He earned a Masters Degree in civil engineering from the University of Illinois, and after 9/11 completed several leadership courses through FEMA’s Emergency Management Institute.  After receiving military assignment as Coast Guard Aide to the President, he served in the White House for two years providing personal staff assistance to President Clinton, carried the nuclear 'football', and coordinated an array of airlift and logistics support for the President’s domestic and international itinerary.  Captain Stowe commanded one of the Service’s largest industrial bases in the Pacific, administering a multi-million dollar budget to provide support services to all of southeast Alaska.  His career military awards include the Defense Superior Service Medal and four Meritorious Service Medals.
