About Mark Gray

At the age of 12, I went to Missouri Military Academy in Mexico Missouri because I was NOT a good student and I was growing up in the beginning of a broken family. May 1980, I graduated as 2nd Lt. and Executive Officer of Honor Company Echo. And it is this experience that straighten my love of country. In this same time, I came to form an attitude and mindset of "to live or die by the sword" principle of life.

50 years later, I have come to accept a better principle in life - "the pen is mightier than the sword." And communications accomplishes far greater feats than battle or war!

This isn't about what I have done in the past. This is about what I what to do and desire for the future of Missouri.

If you really must know, then reach out to me and let's talk. I won't allow you to create a slanderous piece based on shoddy journalism investigations. Instead you may speak to the source. No secrets or skeletons in the closet.
