G-d bless him and all the doctors, nurses and "care team" members at the VA and the Fisher House. We should consider ourselves deeply honored to have such a brave guy staying with us here in Palo Alto.
Every time I drive by I think of the good work they are doing over there and point it out to my kids that its a very special place.
