Ken Fischer, Chairman of the Fisher House Foundation, joined Kilmeade & Friends in studio to talk about the work the Fisher House does for veterans around the world, the Invictus Games coming to Orlando in May 2016 and Donald Trump saying Senator McCain is not a war hero.
Weighing in on Trump/McCain controversy, Fisher said he has the utmost respect for Donald Trump running for president and believes Trump has a point about our Veterans not receiving enough help. However, Fisher pointed out that McCain is only one senator and does not have unilateral control of what becomes law. Fisher also cautioned Trump on attacking someone for their military service.
Fisher talked about the importance of Prince Harry bringing the Invictus Games to Orlando, Florida in May 2016. The Invictus games are the only international adaptive sporting event for injured active duty and Veteran service members. Fischer explained why that games are powerful, because they use athletics to inspire recovery, support rehabilitation and generate a wider respect for the men and women who have sacrificed so much to protect this country. The games bring together more than 400 military members from up to 14 nations to compete in 10 sports, archery, track and field, cycling, indoor rowing, sitting volleyball, swimming, triathlon, wheelchair basketball, wheelchair rugby and wheelchair tennis.
