According to the Department of Defense, 35,944 service members have been wounded in Operations Enduring Freedom and Iraqi Freedom, and with the help of Veterans Airlift Command, these brave men and women get the help they need to heal.
Watch here to see how Dr. David Nelson, an orthodontist, Vietnam Veteran and Veterans Airlift Command volunteer, helps wounded soldiers by flying them in his Twin Engine Cessna 425 to San Antonio’s Center for the Intrepid at the Brooke Army Medical Center.
The Alliance for Aviation Across America applauds the work done by Veterans Airlift Command. That’s why we continue to fight to keep services like these available in small towns across the country. Congratulations on serving over 1700 wounded soldiers so far, and keep up the good work!
