Kenneth Merritt – Fisher House
Kenneth Merritt served as the Chief Clinical NCO for the Department of Nursing at Walter Reed Army Medical Center. He retired as an E9 after serving 29 &1/2 years. He is currently Fisher House Foundation Manager in Bethesda. Fisher House is a non-profit organization that builds and donates homes to Military and VA installations to have a place for the family members to stay while their love ones are receiving medical care at the Military/VA Medical Center. The Federal Government will pay for 30 days at a hotel for visiting families. Fisher House extends the housing for visiting families for up to 3 years. When the demand is more than Fisher House capacity, they use donated frequent-flyermiles for local hotel stays.
