Friends, family and neighbors joined together to welcome Cpl. Patrick Dray home from his most recent deployment with a large party.  As a tribute to his service, t-shirts were sold to raise money for the Tennessee Fisher House Foundation, Inc.  to build a ‘home away from home’ on the Alvin C. York VA Campus.  This 20-bedroom/bath home will offer free lodging  to active military and veteran families so that they can be near their loved one while they are receiving care at the York VA as well as the Nashville VA Hospital.  The t-shirts were ordered through www.bigfrog.com/nashville/militaryhomecoming.
