Woodbridge, VA, June 12, 2012 – Belvoir Federal Credit Union assists the Fisher House, located in Fort Belvoir, VA, during their Grand Opening. Before the ribbon cutting ceremony on May 22, 2012, Belvoir Federal provided a Fisher House tour on May 18, 2012, for those visiting the grounds for the Grand Opening Ceremony.

Stephanie Crabtree, Belvoir Federal’s Installation Liaison and Membership Development Officer, was invited to be a guide on this special day for the newly designed Fisher House on Fort Belvoir. Crabtree stated, “It was an honor to provide a tour of the grounds to the speakers and visitors of the event. At the credit union, we are continually showing our support for the military, their families, and the Fort Belvoir community.”

The Fort Belvoir Fisher House is a place where military families, who are visiting their wounded family members, can stay. Ken Fisher, chairman of the Fisher House Foundation, described the facilities as “A home away from home for those who have a loved one who is sick or is wounded in service to their country.”

The Fisher House Foundation donates and builds “comfort homes” on the grounds of major military bases and Department of Veterans Affairs medical centers. The program recognizes the significant contributions and sacrifices of our men and women in uniform and demonstrates the nation’s willingness to support them and their families. The Fisher House program was established in 1990 by Zachery and Elizabeth Fisher, which is now under the direction of their grandnephew Ken Fisher. For more details, visit
