New Lodging In Bethesda For Wounded Warriors' Families

BETHESDA, Md. (AP) -- First Lady Michelle Obama is cutting the ribbon on three new residences for families of ailing U.S. service members and veterans in Bethesda. Mrs. Obama was scheduled to join other officials Thursday at the official opening of the Fisher Houses at the National Naval Medical Center. The residences were built by the Fisher House Foundation to provide free lodging for the families of as many as 225 ill and injured service members. The Rockville-based foundation has built and donated dozens of Fisher Houses at military and veterans facilities since 1991. The new residences are part of the planned move of Walter Reed Army Medical Center to Bethesda next year. SOURCE: WUSA
