On Friday, October 20th The Barbara E. Giordano Foundation will present Salute to Women Veterans, a dinner show at the Doral Arrowwood Conference Center in Rye Brook, NY. The event will honor Allison Jaslow, Executive Director, Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America (IAVA). Allison is a two-time Iraq War veteran who served a year-long deployment from 2004-2005 in Taji, Iraq and in the Baghdad Area starting in January 2007 during the well-reported "surge" recommended by General David Patreaus for nearly 15 months. At 24, Allison deployed again as the Battalion Adjutant for a support battalion that was responsible for logistics in the entire Baghdad area of operations. In addition to being the Commander's right hand, she oversaw unit personnel and public affairs and was ranked the top Captain in the battalion during her tenure. Before leaving the Army in 2008, Allison was awarded the Bronze Star medal and Army Commendation Medal with one oak leaf cluster among other service recognition.
The evening will also honor Foundation volunteers Diane Brizer and Phyllis Finn for their longstanding support of the organization, and will feature entertainment by comedian Jane Condon (Last Comic Standing, TODAY Show) and the USO Show Troupe. New 12 anchor Richard Giacovas will act as emcee.
