I first became aware of Fisher House to be built at the Alvin C. York VA Hospital when Andrea Lawrence spoke to the Noon Exchange Club of Murfreesboro. Americanism is one of the pillars of The National Exchange Club so this message drew me closer to the project.
Not only did I make a financial donation, not as much as I wanted, I then arranged with Ms Lawrence to be able to post 3 foot by 5 foot American Flags on 8 foot poles from our "Healing Field - Flags of Remembrance" over Memorial Day weekend as a pathway for the groundbreaking ceremony. A beautiful site as you entered the area, and much more of a image when photos were published of the flags.
Any time we can help those who served and abided by their oath to defend this country, I try to help. Knowing Fisher House has the same approach makes me want to support more.
Don Wright, 2013-2014 National President, National Exchange Club
