THE FISHER HOUSE FOUNDATION

5

Fisher House Foundation is best known for a network of comfort homes where military and veterans’ families can stay at no cost while a loved one is receiving critical care and for 27 years has supported the total military family. There are 72 homes located at major military and VA medical centers nationwide, close to the medical center or hospital they serve. Fisher Houses have up to 21 suites, with private bedrooms and baths. Families share a common kitchen, laundry facilities, a warm dining room and an inviting living room. Fisher House Foundation ensures that there is never a lodging fee. Since inception, the program has saved military and veterans’ families an estimated $360 million in out of pocket costs for lodging and transportation. Over 305,000 families served at a Fisher House since 1990, and that number continues to grow each year as Fisher House Foundation builds new houses at VA and military medical centers with the greatest need. Fisher House Foundation also operates the Hero Miles program, using donated frequent flyer miles to bring family members to the bedside of injured service members, as well as the Hotels for Heroes program using donated hotel points to allow family members to stay at hotels near medical centers without charge. The Foundation also manages a grant program that supports other military charities and scholarship funds for military children, spouses and children of fallen and disabled veterans. For more information about the Fisher House Foundation, please visit www.fisherhouse.org.

…because a family’s love is good medicine.

THE PERRY POINT HOUSE

7

The Perry Point VA Medical Center, a division of the VA Maryland Health Care System, is one of 14 sites selected nationwide for construction of a Fisher House. Constructed and donated to the Department of Veterans Affairs and the Department of Defense by the Fisher House Foundation, the Fisher House facilities offer the comforts of home to families and caregivers of veterans and service members receiving care at a VA medical center or military hospital. Family members and caregiver may stay in a Fisher House at no cost to them so they can be at the bedside of their loved one during treatment for an illness or injury. The 14 Fisher House sites will support access to care for thousands of veterans and their families traveling to VA facilities for treatment. To date, the Fisher House Foundation has built and donated 31 Fisher Houses to the Department of Veterans Affairs, with an additional 16 in various stages of construction planning, and 40 Fisher Houses to the Department of Defense. In 2016, Fisher Houses accommodated more than 23,000 families, saving guests more than $3 million in lodging expenses. “Having a Fisher House on our Perry Point campus fits in perfectly with our model of patient- and-family-centered care,” said Dr. Adam M. Robinson, director of the VA Maryland Health Care System. “The new Fisher House will be available to family members and caregivers of veterans receiving care at the Baltimore and Perry Point VA Medical Centers, and the Loch Raven VA Community Living & Rehabilitation Center.” Details about the Perry Point Fisher House, such as size and exact location, are still being determined.

Thank you again to each and every one of you for joining us tonight and many thanks for supporting our nation’s wounded heroes and their families.

FALLEN HEROES TABLE

13

This small table … … honors the many members of our armed forces – our heroes -- who answered the call of duty but were unable to return home. It is deliberately placed before our nation’s colors as a special place of honor.

… symbolizes the presence of their loving spirit; they will never be forgotten.

… is set and reserved for one to honor each of our missing and fallen loved ones. … is round to represent the everlasting concern for those missing and fallen comrades. The white tablecloth … symbolizes the purity of our heroes’ intention to respond to their country’s call to arms. The single red rose … reminds us of the life and love of each hero and the sacrifices that they made for this country. The yellow ribbon ... tied so prominently on the vase, symbolizes remembrance for the families and loved ones who keep the memories of our brothers and sisters alive.


14

FALLEN HEROES TABLE continued

The solitary candle … stands proud, straight, and tall … just like our comrades and symbolizes the ultimate sacrifice that our fallen comrades and their families have made to preserve our precious freedom. The slice of lemon on the plate … reminds us of their bitter fate. The salt upon the table … symbolizes the tears shed by families as they have endured the sorrow of their loved ones’ fate. The inverted glass … symbolizes that our heroes are with us in spirit but cannot raise a glass to toast with us tonight. The chair … leans forward against the table and represents a reserved space for each of our heroes. Please take a moment this evening to remember these brave men and women who have made “the ultimate sacrifice.” We also ask that you keep their families and loved ones in mind tonight as we continue our cause to support the Fisher House Foundation’s mission to provide a “home away from home” for military families so that they can be near their loved ones during hospitalizations for illness, disease, or injury. Thank you for your support! Sincerely, The Board Members of AUSA Major General Harry Greene, Aberdeen Chapter The Committee for the 2017 Fisher House Gala
