the fisher house at the VA

the fisher house at the VA
took me a while to discover what this was, but ya gotta love the web-- persistence and research skills pay off. the fisher house is a place on the west roxbury (MA) campus where families cn stay while their military loved one is being treated at the VA. more info from their brochure below........ evidently, there are fisher houses across the US on the campuses of VA hospitals.

btb, now that i can drive at night (whoo-hoo), i need to work on my night-time shooting skills ~grin~

directly from their brochure:

Fisher Houses recognize the special sacrifices of our
men and women who served in uniform by meeting
a humanitarian need beyond that normally provided
by the Department of Veterans Affairs or any other
hospital. Veterans and their families often must travel
long distances to receive specialized medical care.
This often leaves their families in need of temporary
housing in the area.
The Fisher House Foundation donates “comfort
homes”; built on the grounds of major military and
VA medical centers. These homes enable family
members to be close to a loved one at the most
stressful times - during the hospitalization for an
unexpected illness, disease, or injury.
