"To each and every one of you that has made the decision to enlist, thank you."

— Holli Lewandowski, Board of Directors

If you know someone that is thinking about enlisting or has already enlisted, let us know! They may be eligible to receive a Travel Award and financial benefits.

Our dream is to say thank you to every young man and woman in Wisconsin that enlists in the military, and to be able to help get them home. Visit our News page to read about some of the individuals who have already received one of our Travel Awards.


You are eligible for a Military Travel Award if you meet these 3 conditions:

  1. You are an enlisted member of a branch of the US Armed Forces.
  2. You were a Wisconsin resident at the time you enlisted in the military.
  3. You meet ONE of the following:

a) You have not transferred from your first permanent duty station


b) You have not yet been home since arriving at your first permanent duty station.
