My brother was critically wounded in Iraq in August of 2007. He spent the majority of the next 7 months in the ICU with a traumatic brain injury until he passed away from other complications. Air Compassion for Veterans helped me travel to Washington, DC every other week to spend time with my brother and help relieve my parents. Without the help of Air Compassion for Veterans, I wouldn't have been able to afford all of the traveling that I did. I am grateful for the time I was able to spend with my brother.

I was introduced to ACV nearly two years ago, and have been both a recipient of their help, and an ardent supporter ever since. Their work is truly a corporal work of mercy - to provide travel and logistics help for those disabled veterans and their care-givers and travel companions! Now I am working with them to provide flights for disabled veterans for a program to help these veterans learn to start their own businesses, helping them to achieve a measure of personal and financial independence. Its truly amazing, the amount of good they do for our wounded veterans.
