Service Above Self – Honoring our Veterans

On Wednesday, November 9th – “Service Above Self” is an event to honor veterans as well as to raise funds for construction of a Fisher House in Ann Arbor near the VA hospital.  Fisher Houses exist all over the country (but none in Michigan…yet) and are much like Ronald McDonald houses except the Fisher House facilities are near VA hospitals.  Each Fisher House provides accommodations, services, and support for families of injured veterans while the veteran is undergoing lengthy treatment and recovery at VA hospitals.   Some veterans have to obtain treatment at hospitals that are several hundred miles away from the family’s home so this type of facility is needed and very important.
