WE’RE INVENTING THE FUTURE. AGAIN. When we introduced the two-way radio in 1938, we did more than introduce a product. We rode along with officers to learn how they operate, and we transformed policing with a device that filled a need no one else even saw. We’re still creating products that operate like second nature. This is our purpose.









Luke’s Wings, a non profit organization,  will be onsite at the Summit should you like to learn more:

Mission Statement:
Founded in 2008, Luke’s Wings is an organization dedicated to the support of service members who have been wounded in battle. Recognizing the immediate need for families to be with their loved ones at such a difficult time, Luke’s Wings provides families with the means to visit during the service member’s hospitalization and rehabilitation. By purchasing travel agency services and travel tickets for loved ones, Luke’s Wings provides an immediate and invaluable service to the families of our men and women at arms while also helping to encourage and motivate the service member’s recovery.

In 2012, Luke’s Wings created an additional project line to provide emergency flights for the families of our service members who are injured on special missions. Luke’s Wings is honored to be able to be a resource for Special Operations Forces within the United States Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) – Care Coalition.

While individual donations may be made directly on our website, Luke’s Wings also asks corporations to support our cause with corporate sponsorships and in-kind donations. Please contact lindsaygill@lukeswings.org on ways to get involved.
