IFHF Reaches Milestone for Ft. Campbell Traumatic Brain Injury Center
Ft. Campbell Kentucky's Center to Diagnose and Treat Traumatic Brain Injury has hit a construction milestone. Kate Lochte speaks with Arnold Fisher, a family representative of the national fundraising effort, Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund. The center will provide diagnosis and treatment for wounded, injured and ill military heroes while creating programs for rehabilitation and recovery.
"We need to collect $60 million more to finish our mission. This is an extremely important mission. And one other thing, for every dollar that's collected, 100% of every dollar goes to building these centers. We take nothing for administrative costs, no salaries, nothing like that."
Arnold Fisher of Fisher Brothers Real Estate and Finance carries on a family commitment to soldiers and their families that includes Intrepid Spirit at Ft. Campbell. The Center's focus is on traumatic brain injury and post traumatic stress, the signature wounds of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. The National Intrepid Spirit of Excellence satellite center is nearing completion and will be the third of nine planned centers nationwide created through Fisher's family philanthropic leadership.
