In the Crosshairs


January 9, 2019

2018 found the Roots for Boots team at the Bethesda Fisher Houses for the annual June BBQ and Christmas decorating.

It is always a humbling experience to descend upon the base at Walter Reed armed with food and positive energy for our military families. When one family member serves so do those left behind at home.

The sacrifice if heavier when a service member is hospitalized. Roots for Boots is honored, in its small way, to bring smiles, support and encouragement to the families residing in the Fisher Houses.

We love connecting our community to the Mission and work of the Bethesda Fisher Houses!
