About Us


Angel Airlines for Veterans (formerly Air Compassion for Veterans) is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit national organization based in Virginia Beach, Virginia.  Our mission is to ensure that no veteran in need is denied medical care due to a lack of long-distance transportation. AA4Vets is a program of Mercy Medical Angels, a 4-Star Charity Navigator nonprofit organization founded in the early 1970s.

With PTSD and TBI being a major factor in the tragedy of 22 veteran suicides being committed each day, AA4Vets serves on the front lines, providing free air and ground transportation for ill and injured veterans to access a variety of therapies:

  • Medical treatment
  • PTSD/TBI treatment
  • Rehabilitation
  • Service dog acquisition
  • Hyperbaric oxygen therapy
  • Counseling
  • Adaptive sports events

Through partnerships with major airlines, we provide airline tickets to treatment destinations. Flights in small planes owned and operated by volunteer pilots are also available. For shorter distances, ground transportation via gas cards and commercial bus and rail tickets may be the appropriate means of transit.

The qualification process for requesting help is simple. Use the online form to apply. Once we receive your information, we’ll be in touch.  Thank you for visiting our website.
