Dixon VFW Donates $2,000 to Travis Fisher House
The Dixon VFW post was among the organizations receiving an award from Colonel Corey Martin, 60th Air Mobility Wing Commander and Lt Col Mark Nassir, 60th Medical Group Deputy Commander; holding the award is VFW Post 8151 Commander Brock.McMahon along with Post Member Robert LaPlante.
The Travis Fisher House provides a home away from home for military and veteran families to stay when a loved one is undergoing treatment at David Grant USAF Medical Center for a serious illness or injury, providing physical and emotional support to our servicemen, service women, retirees, veterans and their families.  Since opening its doors in January 1994, the need has exceeded  the capacity resulting in nightly waiting lists so the Fisher House Foundation is building a second Fisher House at Travis with the Ground-Breaking Ceremony scheduled for 2 pm on November 13th, 2013.
