What a way to end Veteran's Day, 2009.

Last night, my husband and I had the honor of attending a dinner in Washington, DC to raise money for a great cause. If fact, the group's name is CAUSE: Comfort for America's Uniformed Services.

It was started just six years ago by the wives of four classmates from West Point's class of 1967.

It has grown tremendously since then, yet it has virtually no layers of bureaucracy, so donations go straight to services for our veterans.

One of CAUSE's specialties is providing video game and movie carts for those who are facing months in the hospital with little to keep their minds occupied.

The talented Jennifer Griffin, Fox News National Security Correspondent, was the emcee.

Guests included CENTCOM commander General David Petraeus and many military heroes.
