Bringing Veterans' Families Together
ALFA and its members are proud to partner together with Luke's Wings to help veterans and their families in their time of need. This program is designed to connect veterans residing in senior living communities who are on hospice with family members experiencing financial hardship and living far from the community.
About Luke's Wings
Luke’s Wings was founded in January 2008, 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.
Today, the majority of requests are for World War II veterans, Korean War veterans, and Vietnam War veterans in senior living communities or nursing homes. Luke’s Wings regards the Veterans in Hospice Care Program as a “final salute” to the greatest generation that ever lived.
