About Barb Allen

Barb Allen’s life changed dramatically when her husband Louis Allen was murdered by a fellow soldier while deployed in Iraq.  Left to raise four small children on her own while also navigating the cold world of the military judicial system, her world collapsed again when the confessed killer was set free. The series of compounded tragedies broke her spirit more than once, but she found there was always someone there to help her get up and try again. She earned her Masters in Criminal Justice and used her new research skills to write her first book, Front Toward Enemy, about her husband’s murder. She continues to press the government to award her husband the Purple Heart.  She gritted her teeth through two surgeries to repair arms she damaged with hours of writing, and  wrote a second book to help lighten things up. She now brings her array of life experiences to audiences in keynote presentations.

She’s been crowned an Honorary Miss America and won a NYS Press Association award as well as an award from the Military Writers Society of America (MWSA). She is a book reviewer for MWSA and has been known to carry models of claymore mines in her purse as she heads into news studios  to discuss  her husband’s case. She rarely passes up an opportunity to ride a mechanical bull and she loves finding time to ride her horse. She has way too many dogs and a house that is never truly clean but is always full of happiness now that she and her almost grown sons have found their way through dark times.

Barbara understands the impact of our experiences on our well-being. When she was bombarded with a seemingly endless campaign of bad news and difficult times, it was the glimpses of positive stories and the people who shared those with her that helped her through. Now she sees a trend of bad news barraging this country in one outlet after another, and has joined forces with others who seek to reverse that trend. She is passionate about helping Americans remember and reinforce the greatness that still lives within our citizens. She is hell bent on ensuring our military is taken care of, and grateful to have an opportunity to bring American Snippets to you. Learn more about Barb or book Barb to speak at next event:
