My brother was critically wounded in Iraq in August of 2007. He spent the majority of the next 7 months in the ICU with a traumatic brain injury until he passed away from other complications. Air Compassion for Veterans helped me travel to Washington, DC every other week to spend time with my brother and help relieve my parents. Without the help of Air Compassion for Veterans, I wouldn't have been able to afford all of the traveling that I did. I am grateful for the time I was able to spend with my brother.

The Great!

What a great organization this is for people in need. Seldom do you think about the difficulties people face in a crisis, but when you experience it firsthand you understand. This organization is there when you need it and was a godsend to us in our time of need.

As both a disabled veteran and employee of Air Compassion for Veterans (ACV), I can tell you first hand how important this benefit is to our men and women serving our country. ACV does not duplicate the air transportation services provided to our injured veterans. Instead, we pride ourselves on being the safety net for our veterans when the federal government is unable to support their air transportation needs. Simply put, ACV gets the veteran to the best medical treatment options available in the country. This way he/she can have optimal recovery from their injures. Monthly, ACV provides an average of 500 free flights to veterans and their adversely affected family members to a variety of Therapeutic, Rehabilitative and Counseling Services that are not accessible in the veterans local community. These are mostly ambulatory clients on commercial carriers, but may include Medevac and Angel Flight(private plane volunteers). Requests for support often exceed the resources available to ACV, so we work tirelessly to solicite fundings and frequent flyer miles from a variety of sources. If you know of an individual or organization that would like to join in the delivery of these compassion flights, please contact the ACV office. www.aircompassionforveterans.org/donate

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

reading the many letters of thanks from the families that we support with these flights.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

dedicated to serving those who served their country. The staff is committed and dedicated to granting as many requests for support as possible. ACV is happy to report that 96% of all contributions goes to pay for these free flights to veterans.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

fulfill all veteran and family member requests for air transport no matter what generation they served in the United States military.

Ways to make it better...

the Federal Government (DoD/VA) would work in partnership with ACV so that fewer veterans missed out on need medical services that were only available outside of the veteran's local area.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Having enough resources to help every veteran request for air transporation.

I was introduced to ACV nearly two years ago, and have been both a recipient of their help, and an ardent supporter ever since. Their work is truly a corporal work of mercy - to provide travel and logistics help for those disabled veterans and their care-givers and travel companions! Now I am working with them to provide flights for disabled veterans for a program to help these veterans learn to start their own businesses, helping them to achieve a measure of personal and financial independence. Its truly amazing, the amount of good they do for our wounded veterans.

The treatment I got for TBI was life-changing for me. They saved me thousands of dollars in travel money and allowed me to access health-care I otherwise would not have been able to access.

How much joy they get out of helping veterans get the treatment they need. They are so happy to do it! It really makes me feel good to be involved with them.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Super motivated, high energy, tireless, and joyful. Just so happy to be part of the solution. It was so refreshing.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Help every veteran in the country who needs it, because they are so efficient with their money, and their flight planning.

Air Compassion is a wonderful partner for America's VetDogs. We provide assistance dogs and training to America's wounded heroes. Air Compassion helps us by providing transportation to our training center for veterans, and to veteran's home areas for our staff.

I have seen Air Compassion for Veterans (ACV) in action and I have seen our veterans served. I have been there when a veteran wept as he received a much needed service dog – because ACV flew him to the school. I have seen a parent get into the plane with their wounded warrior son to fly home with them. I have seen first hand how this incredible non-profit organization serves those who have given so much for us in service to our country. After all, if they are will to sacrifice for us shouldn’t we be willing to rise up to their needs? If a service member needs to get to a doctors appointment, if they need to get to therapy shouldn’t we do everything possible to get them there? Why is it so hard for them to find funding? Think about it.

This is an amazing nonprofit that serves our countries wounded warriors and their adversely affected family members by providing free air transportation for specialized medical care, counseling and rehabilitation services. They have provided over 14,200 flights from 11/06 to 2-10. When our country sends these brave servicemen and women to protect our freedom, the least we can do is make sure they receive the finest treatment and care available and ACCESS to that care. That is what Air Compassion for Veterans does, and can do it within hours if there is an emergency.

Air Compassion for Veterans (ACV) is a service that our wounded will need for sometimes their entire life, especially those who suffer from PTSD amd TBI. 10 mil. will provide 5 years of free air transportation for our injured heroes.
