Rosalinda “Rosie” Babin
As the mother of a severely wounded warrior, Rosalinda “Rosie” Babin knows first-hand the challenges that service members and their families face after they’ve been wounded and what the caregivers face when taking care of a severely wounded patient. She herself faced many paths with no clear direction and many ‘No’s’ from places she turned to for help after her son was critically wounded in 2003.
Her tenacious, yet gentle way allowed her to see past the no’s to find the answers, the guidance and the resources she needed for her family. She is an Army veteran herself and a former paralegal and an administrator. She continues to care for her son full-time since he was wounded in Iraq but has decided to put her experience to work to help other wounded, and their families.
Rosie is the Founder and CEO of Help Our Wounded a nonprofit organization that provides direct assistance, resources and support to our wounded and those who care for them.
Today she speaks before civic and veterans groups to inspire and motivate them to fill the gaps where the Department of Defense and Veterans Administration fall short in meeting the needs of our combat veterans. She works with members of Congress to keep the interests of wounded warriors front and center and she helps families find their way to a new state of normal that is happy and whole.
A passionate, dedicated advocate adept at navigating military and medical bureaucracies on behalf of warrior veterans and their caregivers, Rosie is a compassionate, strong, team-builder who builds networks that improve warriors quality of life.
Rosie is married to her high-school sweetheart, Alain, Assistant Chief of Police of the Round Rock Police Department. Together, they have two children Alan and Christy, and reside in Round Rock, Texas.
