The more Barbara Allen fought to be normal, the harder life laughed at her. Just when she thought she had the last laugh, life turned against Barbara in a tragedy that almost destroyed her. Barbara Allen was 32 years old in 2005 when her world fell apart. Barbara's husband Lou Allen had been killed in Iraq. She was left to raise our 4 little boys alone. Lou's loss was compounded by the shocking manner of his death and the aftermath became one of the most controversial cases in military history. Amply blessed with family and friends, Barbara pieced her life back together and developed a network that spans the country. Not even Barb's worst mistakes overpowered her greatest triumphs as she learned valuable lessons from these experiences, and enhanced her personal and professional worth. Today Barbara Allen is an award-winning author and co-founder of an exciting platform about patriotism and the American Dream. She's blessed with the opportunity to learn from extraordinary people and blend those lessons with her own as she helps others forge their own paths in this amazing country.
