Veterans Airlift Command
March 16, 2010
As the case manager for the military outreach program at the Shepherd Center, Atlanta (the Share Initiative), I have had extremely positive experiences working with Veterans Airlift Command. They have assisted in flying veterans as well as active duty service members and their families to our TBI/ PTSD treatment program, and have also been very flexibile in developing transportation schedules to allow our clients to commute between our program and their homes if their treatment focus is the transition back into the home. This allows our clients to apply and practice routines and strategies acquired in our program into in their home environments and then provide feedback upon their return to treatment. Veteran's Airlift Command has been extremely flexible and has been able to assist us with rather complicated flight schedules and destinations (e.g., Atlanta to South Dakota) on short notice and free of charge to our clients. Our clients with PTSD appreciate not having to fly from large, busy airports on commercial airlines and have had very positive experiences with the personal attention of the Veterans Airlift Command Pilots.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
their flexibility, dedication and amazing ability to accommodate our program and client's needs.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
very professional, caring and compassionate.
