Twenty-five years ago, the first Fisher House opened at what was then the National Naval Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland. Its purpose was to provide a home away from home for families to be near their wounded warriors and veterans.

On the Federal Drive, she told Federal News Radio’s Tom Temin more about some of the recent additions.
