 FORT HOOD, Texas – Combined Insurance, a national company providing individual supplemental accident, disability, health and life insurance products, presented a $10,000 donation to the Fort Hood Fisher House Thursday, May 21, as part of the company’s continued commitment to support military service members and their families.

Art Kandarian, vice president of Sales and Military Markets, said the company has strong military ties through the products it offers to service members and their families and also the growing number of military veterans on its staff.

“Many of us have served in the military or have someone in our life who has served so we are very familiar with all aspects of military life,” he said. “As a former brigade commander myself, I saw firsthand the special service that the Fisher House fulfilled for Soldiers in their time of need. We’re happy to donate this gift to support that great effort.”

The Fisher House is a nonprofit that provides a “home away from home” for military personnel, veterans and their families during a medical crisis. Located at major military installations and VA medical centers, Fisher Houses offer families a clean, safe, low-cost respite from the stress of worrying about loved ones.
