"As a member of the Spanish Airforce, my uncle, First Sergeant, Jaime Blanco, has always lived by a code of perseverance, discipline, and sacrifice – giving up whenever times were tough was never an option. Over the course of my life, I have always strived to live by his example. He has been my inspiration to engage in the military community, to serve those who have served us – this is what drew me to Luke’s Wings and I couldn’t be more excited to give back to a community that is of the most deserving. Thank you, Uncle Jaime, for setting an example of service that I can live by and thank you to all veterans on this special day!" - Beatriz Ibarra, Program Associate, Family Communications & Logistics ...

"My grandpa, John T. Gallahan II joined the Army Air Corps late into World War II. Although he never made it overseas, he did see some action as a plane crashed in Florida during a training incident. After Active Duty, he entered the Army Reserves and eventually went on to receive an honorable discharge, have seven children, and raise them in the Washington, DC area. His father, John T. Gallahan I was active in World War I and, story has it, was gassed by enemy troops in Europe. This past September, my grandpa passed away, after a long fight with dementia and Alzheimer's, so this Veteran's Day is a special one. My favorite memory of my grandfather was when he attended a national Memorial Day parade, and wore his gifted USS Arizona cap. Almost immediately, several groups approached his wheelchair to ask for his autograph and thanking him for his service on the infamous USS Arizona that went down in Pearl Harbor. He absolutely loved the attention, receiving it like the true American he is, until my aunt made him take it off. I will never forget the pride that my grandpa had for our country's rich history (and his go-to song, Battle Hymn of the Republic), and I'm grateful to continue to serve those who served us." - Katie Currier, Program Director, Family Communications & Logistics ...

“Hand over your heart during the National Anthem. Hats off during the Pledge of Allegiance. A firm handshake and a “thank you for your service” to be conducted in the presence of man or woman in uniform or even a veteran sporting their veteran ball cap. Raised on these acts of patriotism, I came to cherish them. Both my grandfather (or Poppy, as I like to call him) Vietnam Veteran Valentin Martinez, Staff Sergeant, U.S. Army, and my uncle, Scott Martinez, Sergeant, U.S. Marine Corps, who served in Desert Storm, are my American heroes. Their pride, respect, and service to their country was impressed upon me from an early age and I have them to thank for it. They have been my inspiration to explore my passion for the military community by joining the Luke’s Wings team. I am so grateful to have a profession where I can give back to those who have allowed me the opportunity to live a life of my choosing by putting their own lives on the line. To all veterans, you are truly loved and appreciated, not only on this day, but every day, by all Americans. Thank you.” – Darian Gilley, Manager of Giving and Operations ... See MoreSee Less

"Growing up, the military was always a big part of my life. Both my grandpa, U.S. Navy Lieutenant Commander Eugene Bierly, and my dad, U.S. Marine Corps Sergeant Woody Bierly, were very proud of their service and the experiences it brought them in life. We were constantly reminded of their service as they shared stories about everything from my grandpa’s life aboard the USS Intrepid to my dad’s experiences as a flight mechanic on C-130’s. When I was younger, I remember learning the Marine Corps hymn and playing it every time my dad walked in the house – bringing a smile to his face. I guess something stuck, because we have added two more Marines to our family, my boyfriend, Sergeant Ben Mackie, and my cousin’s husband, Captain Stuart Price. When I interviewed with Luke’s Wings, Stuart was on a year-long deployment in Afghanistan and I just remember thinking “this could be our family” – something that really made an impact on my decision to join the team. After three years at Luke’s Wings, there are now so many special veterans that too have become family – those who we proudly honor today." - Dakota Bierly, Director, Corporate Sponsorship ...
