A Minnesota woman is among many military caregivers in Washington, DC this week to help launch the “Hidden Heroes Campaign”.
The program is designed to recognize and provide support for people taking care of the nation’s wounded warriors. Carrie Fisher is from Minneapolis. Her husband served 28 years in the military and had a heart attack on his last deployment. She says “one of the really exciting things coming out of the Hidden Heroes campaign is a new website, hiddenheroes.org, which allows caregivers to self identify by state and become connected with resources that are available through that website.”
Fisher has since left her office job to being a full-time caregiver. The Hidden Heroes Campaign initiative from the Elizabeth Dole Foundation.
