GOOD NEWS 'Luke's Wings' Helps Loved Ones Visit Wounded Service Members
No injured service member should have to spend the holidays alone.
This holiday season, that's the mission of Luke's Wings, a non-profit organization that unites wounded warriors, veterans and heroes with their loved ones when they need them most.
By purchasing travel agency services and travel tickets, Luke’s Wings provides families with the means to visit during a service member’s hospitalization and rehabilitation.
Fletcher Gill, CEO and co-founder of the organization, explained to Jon Scott today that the government currently provides families with just three airplane tickets and continued support for only one family member.
Lindsay Gill, executive director of business development for Luke's Wings, said that they are bringing in corporations and everyday Americans to help with their mission.
Fletcher said that because of the generous support from so many companies and individual donors, they have been able to expand Luke's Wings to provide flights for World War II and Korean War veterans in hospice care.
"It's the final salute to the greatest generation that ever lived, making sure they're never alone when they pass away."
