As a volunteer pilot, it is truly a great honor to serve our wounded warriors through the Veteran's Airlift Command. VAC is always organized, professional, and caring for our wounded veterans, and I am committed to flying for them at every opportunity I can.

I wish there were more
veterans groups with the high service ethic to our vets that VAC has, they are head & shoulders one of the best for our vets!

As a volunteer pilot for VAC just can't express enough what an honor it is to fly our wounded warriors to where they need to get to. Over the past 5 years, we've had the pleasure of flying more than 20 missions - each one with the most remarkable warriors on board. We are humbled by their grace, tenacity and gold star outlooks. I have to tell you, we are sad when we land the airplane and have to go our separate ways! There are no words to adequately express our gratutude to our passengers and to Vets Airlift Command, who gives us this august and life affirming opportunity. VAC is the real deal - fantastic, passionate people who make the missions possible. We love being a part of their more than 2500 volunteer pilots. We support VAC and wish we could do more! This is a non-profit that makes great things happen, solves transportation problems and is passionate about the mission. Love VAC!!

On certain rare occasions there comes to the world of nonprofits in America, an organization with such vitality, such power and perfection as to make normal standards of measurement seem clumsy and inadequate. Such a nonprofit is the Veterans Airlift Command (VAC). I have vetted many other nonprofits who advertise their services to U.S. wounded soldiers but have found none that performs so much with only a small staff where approximately 95% of every dollar actually goes to assisting wounded soldiers. I have been a VAC volunteer air crew member for over two years and have participated in nearly 100,000 air miles of transporting many wounded soldiers due solely to the smart and efficient management of the VAC. I rank them number one as a nonprofit providing the most valuable service to our nation's veterans and active duty military personnel. Let me put it another way.....there are no better nonprofits in the U.S. than the Veterans Airlift Command.
Sincerely, Richard D. Iversen, Colonel, USAF, Ret.

I am a wheelchair-bound amputee. Additionally, I have TBI that makes me unable to drive myself personally. The VAC program is critical for me because it gives me a flexible and reliable means of traveling long distances, be they distant trips home, on vacation, or to a medical appointment.

They were amazing, I put in a request for a trip but at the last minute had something come up over the times i had requested. They were able to fly me earlier than I expected and were very accommodating to my needs, above all they cared a lot about what I needed and were awesome!

As VP for Operation Never Forgotten, www.operationneverforgotten.org and Operation SAS, www.operationsas.org, we cannot thank Veterans Airlift Command (VAC) enough for their support of our Big Sky Montana event for wounded Iraq and Afghanistan War Veterans. Our budget did not allow us to bring 6 more wounded troopers from Oregon to Bozeman Montana to attend the event. I contacted VAC and in a couple days they had flight arrangements from three different Oregon locations to Big Sky. The 6 troopers had a great lifetime experience at Operation SAS due to the support of VAC. Thank you very much.

As VP and logistics person for Operation SAS, the support of VAC was critical for us to bring as many troopers as we could to the event.

I would change nothing. Every person I contacted from the coordinator to the pilots were all so very congenial, helpful and support of our troopers. Great, great folks for sure.

This picture was taken of my and Jasper (service dog in training) on the last night of Operation SAS. I brought two vets to the events on 6 Jan from Pendleton Oregon. Took two different ones home to Klamath Falls from Bozeman on 12 Jan.

I'm a fairly new pilot for the Veteran's Airlift Command. It's obvious that VAC is efficient, well organized, and very committed to their mission. I like transporting military people and family members to places that are not well-served by airlines - where the travel day would be long and tedious with multiple connections. We can fly directly between small conveniently located airports, giving wounded warriors a fast fun trip rather than a day of airport misery.

I have had 2 missions now with Veterans Airlift Command and both will be fond memories for a long time. Co-ordination was perfect and very simple (even fot me !) to put the mission details together. But , mostly I had a very rare priviledge to share some windsheild time with our country,s finest heros. Humble , appreciative , pleasant , grateful , proud , strong, supperb examples of what this country has depended on for generations for freedom. If I did not have this dad-gum day job ; I'd take a mission everyday. I look foward to many more.
