“As Military Mothers, we want to be able to see our loved ones as often as possible. But many times, our sons and daughters, are unable to afford the airfare to see their families, both at the holidays and other special family occasions. Many of us will miss Christmas this year, only because of the high costs.
For lower ranking enlisted personnel, this is especially true. And parents are unable to afford to fly to see their children, as well. As a result, families are kept apart, not by duty limitations, but by cost alone
We would like to see significant airfare discounts for active duty military personnel on leave. Our goal is a 50% discount for all enlisted military and discounts for officers based on rank. This is the least airlines should offer to our forces for their sacrifices.”
