Mel Birdwell, whose husband Texas Senator Brian Birdwell was severely injured on 9-11 attack on the Penetgon, will be participating on a special panel of military spouses at the 5th Annual NRA Women's Leadership Forum Summit in Dallas. Also, included on the panel are Krystal Geist and Margaret Tiegen, whose husbands protected the U.S. Embassy in Benghazi, and Ginger Ravella, whose fighter pilot husband's remains were recently recovered and laid to rest in Arlington National Cemetary 10 years after his plane was shot down in Iraq.

The panel will be followed by dinner with a keynote address by Texas Governor Greg Abbott.

We are excited to announce an exclusive event that will take place during this year's Summit:

You will get the oppportunity to attend a VIP private self-guided tour of the George W. Bush Presidential Center and Museum and the limited run "Portraits of Courage" exhibit, showcasing 64 paintings and a four-panel mural painted by President Bush of members of the U.S. military he has come to know personally.

This event is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that is limited to Summit attendees, so don't miss your chance to experience the George W. Bush Presidential Center and Museum in a unique and unforgetable way.

This event is only one part of an incredible weekend retreat that gives you the opportunity to socialize, network, and make new friends, who strive to defend our Second Amendment rights and morals that define us, leaving you motivated and inspired to make a difference and surrounded by a support system of fellow women leaders.
