I had many plans for today. So many observances to attend, and words to write about the heroes we honor (hopefully) more than once a year who have served our nation with pride and distinction.
But I have just returned from Washington, D.C. where I spent the past few days meeting with representatives of the Fisher House foundation, which has spent millions of privately donated dollars to build compounds for the families of service members who need to be close to their greviously wounded soldier sons and daughters.
In the process, I caught a virus, so I am trying to do justice to a subject that I am passionate about, and not very well I am afraid.
So I will pass along this photo wihich touches my heart, and throughout the day, I will also have posts from Bethesda's newest Fisher House, a stunning new facility just dedicated yesterday...and many of us in the media who were there to help.
Please click back and also help with a donation to Fisher House Foundation if you can.
