U.S. Marine Corps Staff Sergeant Eric Fisher dreamed of serving in the military as a child, and once he got to high school and saw the recruiters, he knew he wanted to be a United States Marine.
Fisher enlisted in 2007 and served for almost ten years including deployments to Kuwait, Afghanistan and Bahrain. Always described as the life of the party, Fisher enjoyed the camaraderie he had with his military brothers, as well as having his new wife, Breanna, on base. Fisher worked hard and put everything he had into each and every task and assignment. A few years into his career, Fisher was selected to become a United States Marine Corps recruiter, and subsequently promoted to Staff Sergeant.
After an incredible, nearly decade long career, Fisher was medically retired following bouts with migraines resulting from traumatic brain injuries (TBI), severe post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and anxiety he’d contracted during combat tours. While his goal was to stay in the military for 20 years, his wife Breanna would say, “God had other plans.”
For his bravery, Fisher received two Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medals, a Presidential Unit Citation Medal (Navy), Navy Meritorious Unit Commendation, three Marine Corps Good Conduct Medals, a National Defense Service Medal and an Afghanistan Campaign Medal, one Star, among other accolades.
Fisher and his wife moved to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, in 2017 so he could attend Coastal Carolina University, where he’s currently enrolled in their professional golf management program with plans to help veterans cope with anxiety by playing golf. The couple and their two daughters enjoy spending time outside as a family, playing golf, fishing and riding bikes.
Operation FINALLY HOME and Lennar are honored to provide the Fisher family with a new, mortgage-free home in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.
