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.

I am a veteran of an earlier conflict and have been granted sufficient successes to be able to pilot my own aircraft. I have flown a number of missions for the VAC. The wounded warriors I have been blessed to interact with are universally humble, brave and repectful. They make you proud to be an American and proud to have met them.

I have been familiar with Walt and Veteran Airlift Command for several years. On Saturday, 7 November 2010, we flew our 3rd Mission in support of this country's wounded Heros and their families. In reality, there is so little that we can do to say "Thank You" in a meaningful way. However, one of the more impactful ways is to help one of these Heros or a family member create a memory of a happy occasion. Providing air transportation, utilizing private & business aviation, helps to bring family members together for whom this time together would not have been possible. We are humbled and honored to be of service to those who have chosen to protect our country, our values and our way of life. They, and their families, are our contemporary Heros. VAC does a very thorough and professional job vetting each potential traveler. Each of the Missions we have flown are for those truly in need of assistance. The staff is incredibly efficient and available on a nearly 24/7 basis. In short, VAC has its the act together and performs at a very high level. As has often been said, "Results & Performance are the only things that count .... everything else is "conversation". VAC Gets It Done!
