Maj. Yvonne Heib leaves Tuesday.
The Army says it will be the first time she has seen her family since she was wounded in Afghanistan in January. Heib is a nurse who was wounded in a mortar attack two days before her yearlong deployment was to end.
Veterans Airlift Command flies wounded service members, Iraq and Afghanistan veterans and their families to and from hospitals and events. Pilot Andre Bohy, who also is president of New York-based Omni Financial, will fly Heib to the wedding.
