Mercy Medical Angels
September 9, 2013

I am honored to serve as a member of the Board of Directors of Air Compassion for Veterans (ACV) an essential program of Mercy Medical Airlift. Through ACV veterans are provided with free air transportation for almost anything that will aid in the healing process- adaptive sports programs, medical and rehabilitation treatment, service and seeing eye dogs, PTSD and TBI care and counseling, etc. Our veterans deserve the finest medical care and ACV strives to get them there free of charge.

A note from one of our cancer patients says it all: “While car travel is fine for examinations and testing, a post-surgical patient feels every bump in the road. The service that Angel Flight provides is an honorable and necessary mode of transportation…I am very blessed to know you are there.”

AIR COMPASSION FOR VETERANS
March 15, 2010

I am a VietNam and Desert Shield/ Desert Storm veteran. I am proud to serve as a member of the ACV Board of Directors. ACV is a safety net for our wounded warriors provding them and their family members with cost free medically related air tranportation when DoD and VA resources are not available. An OIF wounded warrior that I befriended was helped twice by ACV. I know of no better charity helping out wounded warriors than ACV.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

reading the letters of appreciation from wounded warriors, helping a wounded warrior obtain air transportation and serving on the Board of Directors.

More feedback

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

the commitment and care given to each of our veterans.

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

kind, compassionate, caring and passionately veteran oriented.

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

continue its work for at least five years to accomodate the growing numbers of wounded warriors with PTSD an TBI.
