JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-FORT SAM HOUSTON, Texas –
After 29 years, Brooke Army Medical Center’s Fisher House manager is set to retire at the end of the year.
Inge Godfrey has spent nearly three decades as the matriarch of the four Fisher Houses on the BAMC campus, providing thousands of families a place to call home while their loved ones heal.
In 1990, Zachary and Elizabeth Fisher began the Fisher House program, dedicating more than $20 million to the construction of comfort homes for families of hospitalized service members.
With the establishment of Fisher Houses throughout the United States and in Landstuhl, Germany, the program has provided thousands of lodging days, saving families millions of dollars each year, a service invaluable to these Armed Forces families.
