We have a tiny staff and big house to take care of! Which means we rely heavily on our amazing volunteers to help us with household chores. Recently, six Soldiers from A Company, SPT BN, SWTG made a huge dent in our to do list! In NC, we do enjoy warmer weather days during the winter. Allowing families to utilize our outside spaces to enjoy sunshine and fresh air. Thanks to these Soldiers, our porches are all clean and beautiful! Additionally, they helped clean inside —AND organized our storage room ! They were a tremendous help ♥️🏡♥️ @ Fort Bragg Fisher House 3120 Loop Dr

Good morning! Today the Landstuhl Fisher House had the pleasure of meeting Maj Cook, the Wounded Warrior Regiment Operations Officer, Based out of Quantico, VA.
