The Veterans Airlift Command (VAC) provides free air transportation to post 9/11 combat wounded and their families for medical and other compassionate purposes. For many wounded warriors, flying in private aircraft, rather than commercial planes, is the best way to accommodate their unique needs.
Smith, the Chattanooga hometown hero, lost both legs in his first tour to Afghanistan and Mullee lost his right leg and a portion of his left calf within three weeks of deployment. Smith and Mullee met Morris at Walter Reed while undergoing rehab.
