Senior Master Sgt. John Borden Jr. was at Kunsan Air Base in South Korea when his daughter, who lives at St. Mary’s Home in Norfolk, went to the prom for the first time. But he still got to see the broad smile on Aly’s face as a DJ played dance music in St. Mary’s Atrium because Aly was in a video of the prom that was posted online.

St. Mary’s Home serves military families like Aly’s through the U.S. Armed Forces’ Exceptional Family Member Program.You can read more about Aly and her family here, in the Military Newspapers of Virginia’s special section about the 2009 Combined Federal Campaign to raise money for nonprofits.
