Community to build new house for families of injured soldiers

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 in Tacoma, Washington, to serve the growing number of military families here.

"Fisher House allowed me to be with my son Matt through all of his medical treatments - including painful surgeries and weeks of rehabilitation - without having to worry about the cost of living in a hotel or apartment near the hospital," said Mike Zajac, whose son Matt was injured by an IED explosion in Iraq and received life-changing medical care at Brooke Army Medical Center.
