Over 90% of donations to Homes For Our Troops go to its mission of building and donating specially adapted custom homes nationwide for severely injured post-9/11 Veterans, to enable them to rebuild their lives
After learning about Homes For Our Troops through Sentient Jet’s sponsorship of Combatant at the Kentucky Derby, I thought, wow what a great cause: “To build and donate specially adapted custom homes nationwide for severely injured post-9/11 Veterans, to enable them to rebuild their lives.” I did write up a short piece for this website, and then of course, did nothing else.

If you aren’t sure you will need 25 hours over the next two years these programs, which start at five hours and $15,000, are an alternative to on-demand private jet charter
Jet cards are the hot spot of private aviation bridging the gap between on-demand charter and fractional or full aircraft ownership. Jet cards make flying easy with one call or some taps on your smartphone to arrange your flight. Many programs have guaranteed availability with one-way fixed rates so you know what you will be paying ahead of the time. You also don’t have to pay for positioning flights. Lead time to make a reservation can be as little as eight hours and unlike charter, you may be able to cancel within hours of your flight with no penalty.
