Fast Facts about Luke’s Wings
Luke’s Wings, a non-profit dedicated to the support of wounded, ill and injured service members, provides families with the means to visit during recovery and rehabilitation.
After observing the struggles of wounded warriors at Walter Reed Army Medical Center, Luke’s Wings was founded by Sarah Wingfield and Fletcher Gill in 2008. Operated as a strictly volunteer-based organization until 2012, Luke’s Wings has quickly grown to become a go-to organization for families in need. As of July 2020, Luke’s Wings has provided 5,700 flights and has received recognition from White House Joining Forces Initiative and Delta Air Lines SkyWish Partnership.
When a service member is injured, the government will provide just three flights for immediate family to be bedside in the first critical moments. After those flights are exhausted, families are on their own for continuous travel. This is where Luke’s Wings steps in, providing families with complimentary airfare throughout the entirety of their hero’s recovery. These flights bring the emotional, physical and mental support needed to overcome challenges every step of the way.
Wounded Warrior Transportation Assistance Program – This primary program line provides wounded and injured service members and their loved ones complimentary airfare, keeping them physically connected during recovery and rehabilitation.
Special Operations Command Transportation Assistance Program – As a trusted resource of the Special Operations Command Care Coalition, this program provides flights for the families of service members who are injured while on special missions.
Veterans in Hospice Care Transportation Assistance Program – This program provides flights for the loved ones of veterans in hospice care so that they can be together in their final days.
