Ending Hunger

Lifelong residents of Baton Rouge, Luci and Wayne Stabiler have experienced the power of community time and time again. Over the years the Baton Rouge area and its people have supported the Stabiler’s businesses in the food service industry, catering and their locally owned restaurants.

Bringing local food and resources to the table has always been a philosophy of the organization. And giving back to the community when and where they can has been an honored practice since the start.

The Navy SEAL Foundation’s programs are specifically designed to address the unique needs of the Naval Special Warfare (NSW) community, who sacrifice their time spent with family; their safety risking their lives to defend America; and, at times, the ultimate sacrifice—losing their lives for the pursuit of freedom.

Karen Vaughn to speak at Sizzlin’ for Seals Soiree

Karen Vaughn is the mother of fallen US Navy SEAL, Aaron Carson Vaughn (SEAL Team VI). On August 6, 2011 Aaron was killed in action in the Tangi River Valley of Afghanistan when a chopper (call sign Extortion 17) carrying thirty Americans was shot from the sky while rushing into battle. Losing Aaron changed everything…and put Karen on a new path.

National Bestselling Author, Karen Vaughn to speak at Sizzlin’ for Seals Soirée benefiting the Navy Seal Foundation on November 2, 2019.
National Bestseller!
“An absolutely amazing book!” 
BRAD THOR – #1 New York Times Bestselling Author
“One of the most important books you’ll read in your life…”
ANDY ANDREWS – New York Times Bestselling Author
“This book is a must read for those who want to understand the sacrifice of the men, and the families, who have given all in the battle of the War on Terror.”
SCOTT MCEWEN  – #1 New York Times Bestselling Co-Author American Sniper

Over the past seven years, Karen has emerged on the national scene as a powerful spokeswoman for not only our defenders still fighting on foreign soil and securing peace across the globe, but also as an advocate for a better, stronger, more resilient America.

Carrying on Aaron’s legacy has brought this Gold Star mother through the halls of Congress, into a National Press Conference, onto dozens of national television sets and well over one hundred radio programs. She’s been featured on large stages across this country as a keynote speaker, including a guest speaker position during opening night of the 2016 Republican National Convention.

Karen has been married to Billy Vaughn for thirty-eight years and still believes her greatest accomplishment on earth was raising her three children, Aaron, Tara, and Ana. She’s also the proud grandma of six.
