Saturday Evening Banquet at DeCordova Bend Country Club
Guest Speaker: Mel Birdwell, wife or State Senator Birdwell
Mel Birdwell is the wife of Lt. Col. (Ret.) Brian Birdwell, a survivor of the terrorist attack on the Pentagon on September 11, 2001. Because 60 percent of her husband's body was covered with burns (nearly half of them were third-degree), Mel knows his survival is a miracle. She stayed by her husband's side as he underwent more than 30 operations and months of multiple skin grafts, physical therapy and recovery. Although it was difficult to be away from their son during this period, the family remained solid because of their devotion to God and to each other.
