Quiet Hero

“My father’s story is not just about my dad,” author Rita Cosby told Hollywood on the Potomac at a book signing for Quiet Hero: Secrets from My Father’s Past. “What it really exemplifies is what it is to be an American.” The “Valor Knows No Gender” event was a tribute to women who are keeping memories alive. The Valor Run is a non-profit organization that brings communities together through running events to honor the US military women who served our country in the Global War on Terror, especially the 160 who made the ultimate sacrifice.

In town for the Memorial Day activities, Cosby ended her long weekend at Dog Tag Bakery in Georgetown, “a vehicle for veterans to put their newly acquired culinary skills into practice after an innovative six-month training program that holistically fosters the growth of driven, entrepreneurial-minded wounded veterans and their spouses through a world-class education, ample leadership development opportunities and a personalized business management rotation.”
