The USO and Angel Flight Northeast are proud to announce the creation of the Angels for Armed Forces® program, which “provides free flights to military personnel and veterans, who need to access medical care. It also provides flights for military family members who need to travel to visit injured service members and whose financial resources do not permit them to travel by commercial airlines. These flights are conducted by AFNE volunteer pilots, many being veterans themselves, who share not only a love of flying, but also have a deep commitment to helping others. They donate their time, their airplanes, all expenses of the flight, and mostly, their hearts to serve their community and those in need.” Awesome!
