The White House Correspondents’ Dinner is coming up tonight, but things kicked off earlier Saturday in Washington with the 2015 Garden Brunch, which benefits both Blue Star Families and Dog Tag Bakery. Among the honored guests was Taya Kyle, widow of “American Sniper” Chris Kyle, who spoke briefly about the benefits of hiring veterans.

Guests left messages of support on the Wall of Honor to be forwarded to active duty military.
