Review for Air Compassion for Veterans, Virginia Bch, VA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am honored to serve as a Community Representative and Board Member for ACV relating the stories of veterans and their adversely affected family members that have received free medically-related air transportation. ACV offers air transportation to PTSD, TBI, Substance abuse, service dogs, counseling, medical treatment facilities and adaptive sports events. ACV is on the front lines of combatting veteran suicides (22 per day) by transporting high risk veterans to partnering facilities. ACV is a 501 (c) (3) charity founded in 2006. Nearly 50,000 trips have been provided thanks to our partner, American Airlines.

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.

Review for Air Compassion for Veterans, Virginia Bch, VA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

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.

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.

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.
