The indefatigable Susan Allen, former First Lady of Virginia, co-hosted an open-to-the-public function this past weekend in Northern Virginia to benefit “Our Military Kids.” It was a huge success to raise money benefiting our wounded soldiers and, specifically, the children of veterans whose parents face the financial difficulty of being deployed.
I was proud to be a co-sponsor, being a Vietnam veteran and having a military kid myself. Recently-elected Congresswoman Barbara Comstock was also present to provide her support.
Another gallant cause by the extended Allen family. And it was a family event as by her side was husband George, the enormously popular former Virginia Governor and U.S. Senator. And it didn’t hurt to have support of his brother Bruce, president of our beloved Washington Redskins.
