Leaders provide update on Charleston Fisher House

  • Tuesday, August 26, 2014

Leaders in Charleston are scheduled to provide an update on the progress of a new Fisher House in the city.

Officials on Tuesday will discuss the progress of the Fisher House being planned for Charleston to serve the families of veterans from Georgia and South Carolina who get treatment at Charleston’s Ralph Johnson VA Medical Center.

Fisher Houses are facilities where the families of veterans can stay while the vets are receiving medical care.

The medical center serves more than 4,500 in-patient veterans each year from 22 coastal counties between Myrtle Beach and Savannah.

Charleston Mayor Joe Riley and retired Marine Corps Maj. Gen. James Livingston, a Medal of Honor winner, are attending the event.
