Emergency Travel Help for Family Members of Wounded Warriors


Upon notification that your spouse or loved one has been injured in the line of duty, the military will assist you in making emergency travel arrangements. All branches of the U.S. Armed Forces recognize the importance of reuniting the wounded warrior with his or family family and provide this service to spouses and qualified dependents.

However, if you need additional financial assistance for travel expenses, the following organizations provide help.

Freedom Is Not Free offers emergency travel assistance for fiancés, grandparents, extended family members and close friends of wounded servicemembers.
