Q:  Is it true troops have to pay for their own airfare?
A:  The Government pays for it if they are on R&R from deployment, but if they want/need to get home pretty much any other time it's on their own dime.
 
Q:  Is Helping Heroes Fly for real?
A:  Yes, we're a nonprofit filed with the Colorado Secretary of State, our Fed ID is 81-1196178 and we donate all of our time so it's our goal that at least 90% of your donations buy tickets!
 
Q:  I thought military troops could fly for free on military planes?
A:  Only IF there is space, IF they are going where he/she needs to go, IF the schedule is right...all the IF's make it not a realistic option very often.
 
Q:  Why do troops need assistance with airfare anyway?
A:  Because at least the first three paygrades in the military don't pay well and a trip home is considered a luxury most of them cannot afford. (In our eyes being reunited with family for important occasions is not a luxury, hence the reason HHF was born!)
 
Q:  Can I donate frequent flier miles to help?
A:   Yes!  You can now donate your flight miles earned with your Capital Once credit card by going to their website and continuing to their "Giving" program!  Please see the link listed below in "Our Favorites."
 
Q:  How are tickets purchased?
A:   The military member (or parent/spouse) fills out the application and submits it along with proof of enlisted military status, photo ID and approved leave paperwork. After we confirm the information and make sure we have the funds available to purchase the ticket they are requesting, we make payment arrangements.
