I first learned about the Tennessee Fisher House while having lunch at Miller's Restaurant. Mr Dan Whittle was sitting at our table and he started speaking of the Big Event The Tennessee Fisher House. As he explained what is was and how it came about I felt compelled to jump on board. The more he talked the more compelled I became to help these veterans and their families who have given so much for us and our country. He introduced me to Andrea Lawrence, President of Tennessee Fisher House. She was a joy to speak with and a bundle of energy! I feel proud to have worked with some of the best people on this. As I have met with veterans and heard their stories I want to give them all the help I can so I want to do my part. The Alvin C York VA hospital is a historic and magnificent tribute to our veterans. There is no better place for the Tennessee Fisher House to be located except on their grounds. Thank you Dan and Andy for letting me be a part of this. Thank you to the Fisher House Foundation for being here and doing what you do. But most of all, THANK YOU to the veterans and their families. God Bless You.

I got involved with the Tennessee Fisher House Foundation through Hooper Penuel and Dan Whittle, two great American patriots who have put their money, time and talent where their hearts are. After one meeting with them over lunch at Billy's Restaurant in Newtown, TN, I went from "involved" to "committed"! Since then I've become a volunteer, multi-county fundraiser and board member. For me, the Tennessee Fisher House project has become a labor of love. So, I'm doing all I can-every day in every way-to make the Tennessee Fisher House dream a ringing reality. I urge others to join this worthy effort because it's the right thing to do for our military families in their times of greatest need. Thomas B. Vaughn, Colonel, US Army, Retired.
