We have a history of supporting the military and veterans


American is committed to working with organizations that help honor those who serve our country.

 Air Compassion for Vets logo Air Compassion for Veterans provides medical-related air transportation for military members, veterans and their families. Through Fuel Smart, a fuel-saving program that uses procedures to safely reduce fuel consumption, American has been able to contribute funds to help provide assistance.

 Hero Miles logo The Hero Miles program helps provide round-trip airline tickets to wounded, injured and ill service members and/or their families who are undergoing treatment at a military or VA medical center or who are attending an authorized event. Flights are made possible in part by mile donations to American's Miles for All Who Serve program.

Snowball Express logo Snowball Express is one of the few charities dedicated to the children of our nation’s fallen military heroes. The all-volunteer nonprofit organization pays tribute to fallen military service members by helping their families connect with each other.

Airpower Foundation logo The Airpower Foundation is a nonprofit organization that raises money for programs that directly benefit veterans, military service members and their families. For the past 12 years, American has sponsored the group’s annual Sky Ball event, a black-tie gala and fundraising event.

Honor Flight Network logo The Honor Flight Network provides charter flights to veterans of various wars and conflicts to Washington, D.C., to view the memorials constructed to recognize their services and that of their fellow soldiers. The “Tour of Honor” relies on donated services and volunteers.

Gary Sinise Foundation logoThe Gary Sinise Foundation honors our military service men and women, veterans, first responders and their families by creating and supporting unique programs designed to entertain, educate, inspire, strengthen and build communities nationwide.
