Weekly Luncheon & Program

Beyond Therapy
introduced by Lion Sam Buford

Our own Lion Rosie Babin will highlight what some of our disabled veterans are doing outside conventional therapy.

Friends and colleagues describe Rosie Babin as a generous, graceful, hard-working person with incredible faith, courage and compassion for others.  She is gifted in bringing people together and building influential relationships from her community - to the Nation’s Capitol. 

She is a determined and tireless advocate dedicated to making the lives of wounded warriors, and their families, better.  Her commitment is very personal:  Her own son, CPL Alan R. Babin, U.S.A., a combat medic with the 82nd Airborne Division, was severely wounded during Operation Iraqi Freedom in March of 2003, survived a brain injury, and transitioned through 7 different medical centers in over 2 years of inpatient hospitalizations. 

Through it all, Rosie demonstrated grace and power under extreme pressure and cared for Alan alongside his medical teams through a complicated, lengthy medical rehabilitation – always ready with a warm hug and a smile.

Rosie’s work ethic, compassion and spirituality engage us and remind us that anything, and everything, is truly possible as she shares one family’s story of determination, perseverance and courage.

Rosie Babin has been married to her high school sweetheart, Alain, Sr., for 32 years.  Together, they joined the Army under the Buddy System in 1978 and were stationed in Germany for 3 years before returning to Texas to finish out their enlistment.   They have two children Alan and Christy, and reside in Round Rock, Texas.

A captivating speaker with a great sense of humor, Rosie is a devoted mother, wife, friend, counselor, advocate and, above all…a warrior.

Please register before 6 pm Wednesday.
