A Service Provided Exclusively for Enlisted Active Duty Military Men  and Women

Our Mission
Our Inspiration
Hopes and Dreams
Our mission is simple. 
We want to provide airfare to enlisted military personnel so that they can be home with their families for holidays, and special occasions when they otherwise can't afford a ticket.
We believe finances should never keep a military hero from being with family!
Our inspiration is the sacrifice our military men and women make for us on a daily basis.
Troops being stuck on base or in a dorm because of finances is heartbreaking and we are determined to do something about it!
It is our hope and dream to be able to fulfill every request we get! 
We can't do this without you.
PLEASE CONSIDER DONATING TODAY!
 
How this works
We operate on a first come, first served basis.  The request will not be considered until a completed application along with proof of active duty US military enlistment is received by Helping Heroes Fly, via email or US mail.
The application will be available on this website  and can be found at the bottom of each page or on the Airfare Application page.  Please complete the application and you will be notified within 24 hours of our receiving it.  We will make every effort to fulfill your travel plans.  
This service will be available to you one trip per person.  We hope to be able to provide a flight for all who request it, but we rely solely on donations so funds are limited.

    Here Come the Holidays!
    We are expecting a crazy-busy holiday season this year! If last year was any indication ~ in our inaugural year ~ we are anticipating a flood of applications and requests for travel assistance. We are getting 2-3 inquiries a day about airfare so we expect those applications to start coming in very soon! We have exceeded our last year's total and we haven't even gotten to the holidays yet! If you are interested in helping our Heroes fly, please feel to donate or share the information about our mission. We appreciate it ~ and the troops do as well!
