In attendance was AWI Gold Star Mom Karen Vaughn, who shared her story with over 300 attendees. Karen is the mother of a fallen U.S. Navy SEAL and is the bestselling author of “World Changer: A Mother’s Story.”

In addition to Karen’s talk, AWI presented Samantha – a local Air Force veteran – with the gift of a service dog named “Boomer,” who was trained by Custom Canines. Also at the event, AWI presented a deserving high school veteran with a scholarship.

Co-founded by Louise Thaxton and Sean Parnell, the American Warrior Initiative is a non-profit organization sponsored by Fairway Independent Mortgage. AWI seeks to ease U.S. veterans’ transition from military to civilian life.
