Our team has been playing golf together for about 4 years now, and this is the 3rd year specifically for this outting. It has always been about getting out there and enjoying the day and playing golf. This year we have something a little different to play for. Harry Koss, a dear friend to all of us--passed away. Harry, was a veteran of the United States Army. As inspiring it was to have Harry next to us all these years. It is just as inspiring as donating to cause of The Fisher House. Which 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 treatment.
These homes are located near major military hospitals and VA centers, making it convenient for service men and women and their families who are in need of lodging close by. Fisher Houses have up to 21 suites, with private bedrooms and baths. Families share a common kitchen, laundry area, 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 $407 million in out of pocket costs for lodging and transportation.
Fisher House Foundation operates the Hero Miles program, which uses donated frequent flyer miles to bring family members to the bedside of injured service members. Fisher House also executes the Hotels for Heroes program, which uses donated hotel points to allow family members to stay at hotels near medical centers at no 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.
