FORT BELVOIR, Va. (AP) - Military and civilian leaders are dedicating a new home on Fort Belvoir that will provide free housing to families of military members receiving medical care at the base's new hospital.
The 10,000 square-foot Fisher House will be donated to the U.S. Army during a ceremony Tuesday. The home will consist of 12 suites to serve military family members. It is one of more than 55 Fisher Houses at U.S. military installations.
The Fisher House being dedicated at Belvoir will accompany the base's new community hospital, a $1 billion, 120-bed facility that opened last year.
