New JBLM Fisher House gets a big boost

Thanks to our friends at D.R. Horton, a new Fisher House at JBLM is one step closer to reality after America's favorite builder donated $15,000 to the cause.

We were honored to have Medal of Honor winner Sergeant First Class Leroy A. Petry came by the stations of Bonneville Seattle to accept the donation from KIRO Radio's Ron Upshaw.

Fisher House Foundation, which constructs comfort homes to provide free, temporary housing to the families of service members receiving medical care at Veterans Affairs and military hospitals around the world, announced a community partnership with Bonneville Seattle and partners to help raise awareness and funds for the need for a second Fisher House at Joint Base Lewis-McChord to serve the growing number of military families here.
