Are you a fan of podcasts? Borne the Battle is our weekly #podcast where we interview Veterans and share their stories with you.
This week on Borne The Battle we sit down and talk to Army Veteran and president of the Fisher House Foundation, Dave Coker.
We talk about new lodging facilities that will help Veterans and their families save up to three million dollars a year in New York, and how the Fisher House Network will soon provide for over 1,000 families at any given time across the country.
Join us for a Facebook LIVE video on May 30, 2019, at 4:30 p.m. EDT to learn about new eligibility and access standards and what you must do before you can access care from a local provider in your community, through VA.
Participating is easy:
Representatives will provide answers and resources. You will need a Facebook account to ask questions.
