What about helping the families of the deployed who are living away from other family have a sincere discount on fares in order to experience somesupport and safety through visiting a grandparent or auntie? It would be wonderful to facilitate a trip for our children to spend time with their grandmother, or haveher come to us with a deeply reduced fare..to cope with being without their hero father for a year. Or a deeply discounted fare for husband and wife to have a much needed post deployment get-a-way? Airfare on a
