Member Spotlight: Military Spouse Andy Graham

Andrea "Andy" Graham is the proud spouse of John Graham, who after 22 years, retired from the United States Air Force in 2011. Andy and John moved to Twin Falls, Idaho in early 2017 to live near extended family for the first time in 25 years. They enjoy traveling, camping, hiking, kayaking, game nights, and most recently, pickleball.

They have two children, Brenden and Reilly, who also live in Twin Falls. Brenden is currently serving in the Idaho Air National Guard.

Andy discovered Mission43 on Facebook. “At the time, I realized that while I enjoy living near family, it was the first time I was away from our military family - and I really missed those bonds and relationships. I started going to Boise for the Mission43 social events, and have since worked with their incredible team to facilitate potential partnerships in our community and with the veteran contingent we have here.”

As an ambassador of Mission43, Andy encourages veteran and military spouse participation in local community functions and networking events to rediscover that sense of belonging, and she looks forward to continued collaboration with the Mission43 team as we expand to Twin Falls and throughout the state.
