Sentient Jet, a Directional Aviation company, sponsored Combatant for the 144th running of the Kentucky Derby in an effort to generate awareness and support for Homes For Our Troops, a nonprofit organization championed by Combatant´s ownership group — Winchell Thoroughbreds LLC and Willis Horton Racing LLC — that builds homes for severely injured Veterans, the company said.
Homes For Our Troops builds and donates specially adapted custom homes nationwide for severely injured post — 9/11 Veterans. Most of these Veterans have sustained life-altering injuries, and these homes enable them to focus on their family, recovery, and rebuilding their lives.
Since its inception in 2004, nearly 90 cents of every dollar has gone directly to program services for Veterans. Homes For Our Troops builds homes where a Veteran chooses to live and continues its relationship with the individual after home delivery. Empowered by the freedom that a donated, specially adapted custom home brings, Veterans can focus on their recovery and returning to their life´s work of serving others.
Founded in 1999 and now an integral part of Directional Aviation, Sentient Jet is one of the private aviation companies in the country. The Sentient Jet Card Program offers clients the flexibility and convenience of flying private for their personal and business air travel needs with industry-leading value. Sentient Jet is known for outstanding service and a commitment to safety programs, including the industry´s first and only Independent Safety Advisory Board.
Homes For Our Troops (HFOT) is a privately funded 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization that builds and donates specially adapted custom homes nationwide for severely injured post — 9/11 Veterans, to enable them to rebuild their lives. Most of these Veterans have sustained life-altering injuries including multiple limb amputations, partial or full paralysis, and/or severe traumatic brain injury (TBI). These homes restore some of the freedom and independence our Veterans sacrificed while defending our country, and enable them to focus on their family, recovery, and rebuilding their lives.
