Luke’s Wings is an organization dedicated to the support of service members who have been wounded in battle. Recognizing the immediate need for families to be with their loved ones at such a difficult time, Luke’s Wings provides families with the means to visit during the service member’s hospitalization and rehabilitation. By purchasing travel agency services and travel tickets for loved ones, Luke’s Wings provides an immediate and invaluable service to the families of our men and women at arms while also helping to encourage and motivate the service member’s recovery.
In 2011, Luke’s Wings expanded the mission to also include Texas veterans during major life events and all veterans in hospice care. As such, a Texas veteran may be with their family during a major life event and a veteran in hospice care may be surrounded by loved ones as they pass away.
Today, the majority of requests are for World War II veterans, Korean War veterans, and Vietnam War veterans in elderly care facilities or long term inpatient care facilities. Luke’s Wings regards the Veterans in Hospice Care Program as a “final salute” to the greatest generation that ever lived and has partnered with the Assisted Living Federation of America (ALFA) to provide these honor flights.
While individual donations may be made directly on our website, Luke’s Wings also asks corporations to support our cause with corporate sponsorships and in-kind donations.
