    Hi everyone! My name is Kevin and I am here seeing if there is anyone out there that has a ton of miles that they will never use that they might be willing to donate to me for my trip! I'm an F-16 crew chief in the USAF stationed in Aviano Italy!! So I am planning my first trip home in 2 years to see my parents in July! I was looking up the amount of miles it would cost for a trip from VCE to FSM and it is crazy high for someone like me that doesn't travel delta all the time.95,000 miles plus $550+taxes and fees!!! So I thought I would at least ask if anyone might want to donate and help out!

    kevinsep12, welcome to Milepoint!

    Have you checked with your air base's MWR (Morale, Welfare, Recreation) office to see if they can help you with reduced-fare airfare for your trip? Here's a link to that office:

    Have you contacted the individual airline (American, Delta, United, etc.) to learn what military discounts are available to you? I'd contact each airline individually, but here's a general article on this:

    Have you checked out military Space-available travel options? I suspect that there's many such options for free military travel to/from Europe and the US:

    Good luck!
