Big John and Ray are taking the week off, but hope you’ll take a few moments to listen to our radio special (Monday/Labor Day from 5:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m.), featuring the Heroes of Fisher Houses, sharing stories of our nation’s veterans and military families.
Fisher House Foundation is best known for a network of comfort homes where families can stay at no cost while a loved one is receiving treatment. These homes are located at major U.S. military and VA medical centers nationwide, close to the medical center or hospital it serves. Fisher Houses have up to 21 suites, with private bedrooms and baths.
Families share a common kitchen, laundry facilities, a dining room and a living room. Fisher House Foundation ensures that there is never a fee. Since inception, the program has saved military and veteran families an estimated $200 million in out of pocket costs for lodging and transportation.
On this holiday, here is how you can help Fisher House:
