These young men and women have given their all for our country. We want to let the world know just how much they do for us every day, and ensure that if they have a need, that it is met.

The Fisher House Foundation will sponsor its second annual awarding-winning Holiday radio show entitled “The Gift” that will air on major market stations across the country between December 24 and 26 (check local listings).

"The Gift" will feature interviews with wounded warriors William Kleinedler, Daniel Burgess and David Hughes; the mother of an injured service member, April Montera; and a father who lost his son in combat, Tom McDonough. The stories – equally heartbreaking and inspiring – are vehicles to a greater understanding of the sacrifices our military and their families make every day, to keep our nation home, safe, and with their own families during the holidays.

“Very few Americans serve our nation in the U.S. military, this is a time for all of us to stop and reflect on their service and sacrifice,” said Ken Fisher, Chairman & CEO of Fisher House Foundation. “These young men and women have given their all for our country. We want to let the world know just how much they do for us every day, and ensure that if they have a need, that it is met.”

“The Gift” is a three-hour show created by Fisher House Foundation specifically for airing during the holiday season. The Public Relations Society of America awarded the 2011 “The Gift” the prestigious Bronze Anvil Award.

More than 100 stations across the country will air “The Gift” in December, including:

About Fisher House
Fisher House Foundation is best known for the network of comfort homes built on the grounds of major military and VA medical centers. The Fisher Houses are 5,000 to 16,800 square-foot homes, donated to the military and Department of Veterans Affairs, where families can stay while a loved one is receiving treatment. Additionally, the Foundation ensures that families of service men and women wounded in Iraq or Afghanistan are not burdened with unnecessary expense during a time of crisis.

Located in close proximity to the medical center or hospital it serves, each Fisher House consists of between 8 and 21 suites, with private bedrooms and baths. Families share a common kitchen, laundry facilities, spacious dining room and an inviting living room with a library and toys for children. Fisher House Foundation ensures that there is no fee to stay in a Fisher House. Since inception, the program has saved military and veteran families an estimated $192 million in out of pocket costs for lodging and transportation.

Fisher House Foundation operates the Hero Miles Program, using donated frequent flyer miles to bring family members to the bedside of injured service members as well as the Hotels for Heroes program using donated hotel points to allow family members to stay at hotels near medical centers without charge. The Foundation also manages a grant program that supports other military charities and scholarship funds for military children, spouses and children of fallen and disabled veterans.
