"To support the families they've left behind..."
We make funds available in the days immediately following an aviation mishap to help with family expenses such as funeral, travel, and lodging costs. Since our founding in late 2014, we have been able to support every single Class A (fatal) mishap in the Navy and Marine Corps in some way, whether that is something as simple as providing flowers and wreaths at a memorial service, to flying entire families across the country and around the world, paying for their rental car, hotel expenses, and even catering for a memorial reception.
Our support does not stop there. Once the dust has settled and families have had some time to grieve their loved ones, any additional funds can be used by the family or squadron even many years afterwards to continue honoring their sailor's or Marine's legacy.
