In 2007 Michael Davis lost his life while serving his country in Iraq. At a mere 21 years of age, Taryn Davis became a widow. In the wake of this tragedy, Taryn began to discover that resources were scarce for young military widows. To reach out and support other young women who had lost a husband in service, Taryn began the American Widow Project (AWP). To date, the American Widow Project has served over 1,100 military widows across the U.S.  In 2011, the AWP was recognized as one of the Top 10 CNN Heroes, awarded the Diane Von Furstenberg People's Voice Award, and was a recipient of VH1's Do Something Award. Founder, Taryn Davis, was also named one of Newsweek's 125 Women Who Shake the World, Glamour Magazine's 21 Amazing Young Women, and was nominated as Texan of the Year.
