Operation Hero Miles

American Airlines is proud to provide an opportunity for AAdvantage members to help members of the U.S. armed forces who have been injured or wounded in Iraq or Afghanistan.

Your donations will assist Operation Hero Miles in providing travel for families of American military men and women who are being treated for injury at military hospitals around the globe. Through its partnership with Fisher House, air travel is provided to family members and close friends visiting U.S. servicemen and women hospitalized due to their service in Iraq or Afghanistan.
