Mark Doyle


Mark is the founder of Rags of Honor, Managing Member of Prairie Avenue Partner, Director of Prairie Community Bank in Marengo Illinois and Football coach at St. Pat’s high school in Chicago. In 2010 Mr. Doyle was engaged by the United States Army as financial subject matter experts and deployed to Afghanistan as part of Task Force 2010. It was in Afghanistan where he saw firsthand the sacrifice of servicemen and women in Afghanistan. He was sickened by the injustice of homeless veterans in Chicago and chose to make a difference. In response, Doyle created Rags of Honor as the only silk screen shop that is 100% operated by homeless and unemployed veterans with the mission to provide them with an opportunity to rebuild their lives after serving in the U.S. military. Mr. Doyle has written for the Chicago Tribune about the Afghanistan operations and is a frequent guest in Chicago on their flagship radio station WGN
