The Invictus Games is being hosted by Dave Coker of the Fisher House Foundation.

She also told the crowd that she would one day bring her kids to the event so they could also experience it.
Wearing a black Banana Republic dress, she said: “It is so special to be here sorry I’m a little late to the party. I had to spend a little more time getting our little ones settled at home and get them to drop off.”
She continued: “Three milkshakes and a school drop off and I just landed a couple of hours ago and I am thrilled that the first event I can do for Invictus is here with all of you. It is amazing and I hear it has got off to a good start so far.”
