Operation Hero Miles


Fisher House Foundation administers the “Hero Miles” program, a service that provides military members, their family and/or friends with complimentary round-trip airfare, sending them to the beside of our wounded, injured or ill service members recovering at military or VA medical center. Flights are made possible through frequent flyer mile donations made by individual airline passengers.

There are three categories of eligible recipients:

  •  Service men and women with approved leave may be given a free round-trip airline ticket for travel from the medical center to their home and return if they are not eligible for government funded airfare. 
  • Qualifying service men and women may be given free round-trip airline tickets to enable their family or close friends to visit them while they are being treated at the medical center.

The request for tickets ordinarily originates with the service member and is forwarded to Fisher House Foundation by the social work staff or family assistance center at a medical center, or through service casualty offices. Only under exceptional circumstances should family members contact Fisher House Foundation directly.

Fisher House Foundation administers the “Hero Miles” program for the Department of Defense, in accordance with Public Law 108-110, the FY 05 Defense Authorization Act.
