Karen Vaugh Bio:
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.
Over the past six 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. In recent months, she’s dedicated herself to helping parents build strong, formidable, goal-oriented families.
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 over two hundred local and national 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. Through her endeavors, Karen has gained audience with three of our nation’s presidents.
Karen has been married to Billy Vaughn for thirty-seven years and still believes her greatest accomplishment on earth was raising her three children, Aaron, Tara, and Ana.
