Graham Toms

The Toms family personifies the classic Irish immigrant family of the past identifying with the American dream. Through a work visa known as the (01) program the family immigrated to the U.S. in 2007 to live the American dream, receiving Green Cards in 2014.

I have met few men in my life with Graham’s distinct intellect of world history. I have not ever met anyone with his painting skill. He is world class. I asked Graham if he would paint one “GRAND” painting that would captivate a person when entering the memorial – he graciously painted 4!

Graham Toms knows the true meaning of what it means to be an American, simply because he knows the HISTORY!

I am proud to call him my friend.
