Review for Veterans Airlift Command, Saint Louis Park, MN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been familiar with Walt and Veteran Airlift Command for several years. On Saturday, 7 November 2010, we flew our 3rd Mission in support of this country's wounded Heros and their families. In reality, there is so little that we can do to say "Thank You" in a meaningful way. However, one of the more impactful ways is to help one of these Heros or a family member create a memory of a happy occasion. Providing air transportation, utilizing private & business aviation, helps to bring family members together for whom this time together would not have been possible. We are humbled and honored to be of service to those who have chosen to protect our country, our values and our way of life. They, and their families, are our contemporary Heros. VAC does a very thorough and professional job vetting each potential traveler. Each of the Missions we have flown are for those truly in need of assistance. The staff is incredibly efficient and available on a nearly 24/7 basis. In short, VAC has its the act together and performs at a very high level. As has often been said, "Results & Performance are the only things that count .... everything else is "conversation". VAC Gets It Done!

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

We have now flown three (3) Missions in support of VAC
