Luke’s Wings was founded in 2008 after learning that the government only provides a very limited number of flights for loved ones to be bedside after a service member is injured. This is where Luke’s Wings steps in to fill the gap for the months and years ahead.
Families are completely on their own to travel back and forth between their everyday lives and their new reality. Luke’s Wings provides complimentary airfare to wounded, ill, and injured service members, veterans, fallen officers, and their loved ones keeping these families connected during recovery and rehabilitation.
These flights bring mental, physical, emotional, and financial support, empowering wounded service members to overcome challenges they face every step of the way.
