Luke’s Wings flies families in and out of military hospitals, but also flies Wounded Warriors home for Christmas, alive days, birthdays, major life events, or just whenever. This service helps ensure that every Wounded Warrior is supported by their family as they recover. In order to deliver this program, Luke’s Wings has partnered with ten military hospitals across the country, as well as received referrals from the USO, Red Cross, and United Way.
Luke’s Wings flies families into Hospice Care facilities when a Veteran is ready to pass away. This service helps ensure that every Veteran is always surrounded by loving family and friends during their final days and hours (and is never alone when they pass away). This allows them to say their goodbyes and allows them to reconcile their differences. It is a service we hold very dear to our hearts, as we know we are providing a final salute to the greatest generation that ever lived (our WWII Veterans) and those who should have been treated better all along (our Vietnam Veterans). In order to deliver this program, Luke’s Wings has partnered with the Assisted Living Federation of America (ALFA) and their 300 partners to deliver this offer to over 300,000 veterans currently residing in senior living communities across the country.
Luke’s Wings flies Texas Veterans and their families for major life events wherein the veteran or an immediate family member has a medical emergency. This is a special service we provide to Texas Veterans. To qualify, a Veteran must be a current Texas resident, and the flight must start or end in the state of Texas. Flights are approved on a case by case basis, and only when additional funding is available.
Emergency flights for the families of our special operators who are injured on special missions. Luke’s Wings is honored to be able to be a resource for Special Operations Forces within the United States Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) – Care Coalition.
