For Immediate Release:

Community Supports Entrepreneurial and Empowerment Retreat for Women Who Lost a Loved One in Military Service

  • “We Are Strong” retreat to offer unique mentorship and opportunity

  • Community responds en masse to local war widow’s request for support

Harriman, New York, October 17-20, 2017 — The Hudson Valley heard a local war widow’s request for assistance, and answered in an overwhelming way.

Orange County native Barbara Allen has never forgotten the enormous local and national support she received after her husband Lou Allen was killed in Iraq. In the twelve years since she became a Gold Star Wife, Barbara has relied on that support more than once. She credits that help with her hard-earned personal and professional achievement in the wake of her loss, and now she is grateful this community has again responded to the opportunity to help military families who lost a loved one in service.

Through generous donations from the venue owners, the American Legion, the Lou Allen Scholarship Foundation, the presenters and speakers Eric Basek, Rob Curtis, Tracy Shue, David Lionheart, and Kent Clothier, and donated time and services of Kaptivated Pixels Photography, Allen and her partner Dave Brown will launch their pioneer program of Entrepreneurship and Empowerment at no cost to the participants.

The “We are Strong” retreat will be held at the historic Orchard Hills Estate. It features Krav Maga self-defense, entrepreneurial gurus offering mentorship and opportunity, speakers, camaraderie, empowerment workshops, and concludes with Marcus Luttrell’s Patriot Tour. It is run by American Snippets, and sponsored by the Got Your Back Network
