ARLINGTON, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--CACI International Inc (NYSE: CACI) announced today that Executive Chairman and Chairman of the Board Dr. J.P. (Jack) London had presented the fourth annual Dr. Jennifer and Dr. Jack London Medal for Distinguished Service at the Veterans Day Gala for CAUSE (Comfort for America's Uniformed Services), which provides opportunities for recreation, relaxation and resiliency for wounded, ill, and injured members of the U.S. Armed Services and those supporting their recovery. Created by the CAUSE Board of Directors early in 2016, the medal was presented to Kenneth Fisher, Chairman and CEO, Fisher House Foundation, Inc., and founder of Fisher Investments, for providing temporary residences for the families of service members and veterans who are being treated for an illness or injury far from home. In addition to 86 Fisher Houses in the U.S. and Europe that have housed 368,000 families since 1990, the nonprofit has awarded over $11 million in scholarships to military family members.
Held November 10, 2019 at the Army Navy Country Club in Arlington, Va., Lieutenant General John Caldwell, USA (Ret), President of the CAUSE Board of Directors, presided over the award presentation and evening events, while wounded warrior, Major Richard Burkette, USMC (Ret.) was the featured speaker. The Dr. Jennifer and Dr. Jack London Medal for Distinguished Service recognizes exemplary, distinguished service and continued support of wounded, ill, and injured service members, their families, and those supporting their recovery. It is presented by the CAUSE Board of Directors to an individual, organization, or group that has made significant contributions to improving the quality of life and long-term outcomes for those who serve. The medal was named in honor of Dr. Jennifer Burkhart London and Dr. London to recognize their personal and professional commitment to serving their community, the nation, and those in uniformed service. A U.S. Navy veteran, Dr. London has served on CAUSE’s Board of Directors since the organization’s founding in 2003, and the proceeds from his book, Character: The Ultimate Success Factor, are donated to CAUSE.
According to Dr. London, “The CAUSE Board of Directors was honored to recognize Kenneth Fisher with this year’s Dr. Jennifer and Dr. Jack London Medal for Distinguished Service. Speaking with Mr. Fisher, one could not help but be inspired by his personal mission of advocacy for those who have made tremendous sacrifices to our country, including military service members, veterans and their families. We are exceedingly thankful for his dedication, and tenacity in addressing the invisible wounds of war, and the families who care for their warriors. CACI and I share this commitment to supporting our veterans.”
