Review for Veterans Airlift Command, Saint Louis Park, MN, USA
We want to thank you for what you do! It is a great thing to have individuals who are willing to use their time and resources to provide help to another. My husband, Kurt Santini II, has been traveling via corporate air service for a few years now to attend doctor appointments across the country. He is a veteran who was injured in the Army, and is now being cared for by the elite medical team through Operation Backbone. This requires him to travel for all his doctor appointments, including tests. The service we were using before we were put in contact with you promised so much ease that we were happy at first. But once arriving at the airport for the first of many travels, we knew that we were not being given what was promised. Kurt had been dealing with excruciating pain in his back and neck for 18 years. The airport and airline service promised that he would not have to go through the security checks in the same way that others did. Because being patted down, removing his shoes, and holding his hands up over his head to be scanned, all caused more pain than he could bear. That is all in addition to the pain that was caused just to sit, stand, and walk for too long.
When we were put into contact with Veteran’s Air Lift Command, it was a sigh of relief. To know that you are providing transportation to veterans in need with little to NO hassle is amazing. Kurt’s first trip with one of your pilots, while painful, because there was nothing anyone could do about it, was literally a walk in the park! No check in’s, no baggage checks, no security checks. All the stuff that gives regular people a headache, that causes people like Kurt physical debilitating pain, was not required. We walked in, met the pilot, and he boarded the plane. It was that simple!
We thank you for providing for those who fought for our country! We appreciate that you are giving back, and we know that you do so much more than most realize. Thank you
