  • Wounded Iraq War Vets Ride For Free To Wounded Warrior Event

    Angel Flight West will fly 15 wounded warriors, and their significant others, to a five-day reunion in Pagosa Springs Colorado beginning June 1. The event, hosted by the Pagosa Springs Chamber of Commerce in partnership with Wounded Warrior Project, brings together soldiers severely injured in Iraq for activities such as horse-back riding, fishing, spa days, fine dining and more.

    “AFW is committed to supporting other non profits such as Wounded Warrior Project,” said Alan M. Dias, Executive Director of AFW. “We are honored to assist these heroes and their families, and we welcome the opportunity to partner with other non profits contributing to similar missions.” There will also be a special recognition event held on June 1 for the service members of WWP.

    Wounded Warrior Project is a non-profit organization whose mission is to honor and empower wounded soldiers. The organization works to raise awareness, and enlist the public’s help for the needs of severely injured service men and women. They also help severely injured service members aid and assist each other.

    Angel Flight West is the country’s largest volunteer pilot organization arranging and providing free air transportation for non-emergency health care. Through the efforts of volunteer private pilots and commercial airline partners, they help to see that American Heroes and others in need of critical medical care can get to the help they need. AFW is a member of The Air Care Alliance, a nationwide network of humanitarian flying organizations providing similar services coast to coast.
