We are incredibly proud of our CEO, Ed Roshitsh, for setting out to personally pay for five military members to travel home for the holidays and inspiring a viral movement on LinkedIn. As an Air Force veteran, Ed knows firsthand how difficult it can be for active duty military to afford a trip home. He set out to give the greatest gift of all - spending the holidays with loved ones. His simple gesture caught the attention of thousands and within a matter of days 60 military members had fully funded roundtrip flights home for the holiday season. Here are the first 27 names pulled from the "hat" - this group nearly tripled in less than a week thanks to the generosity of complete strangers:
