Serving Combat Veterans and Their Families

We provide free, private air transportation to our nation's combat injured veterans for medical or other compassionate purposes through a national network of volunteer aircraft owners and pilots.

Help Repay an Enormous Debt

Our combat injured return home to face devastating injuries and long-term hospitalization—often hundreds of miles away from their families. Veterans Airlift Command believes that is no reward for sacrifice. And it’s the reason why we fly combat injured veterans to their medical facilities. It’s why we reconnect them with their families. And it’s why these flights cost them nothing. In our eyes, they’ve already paid the price.

See how we’ve made lifting combat injured veterans our mission—and discover the many ways you can join us.

Get Involved

Veterans Airlift Command has three ongoing needs: planes, pilots, and donations. However you choose to help, you’re actively giving something back over here to our combat injured who sacrificed so much over there.
