Luker is a professional airline pilot with a total of 32 years military service, both active and reserve. He founded The Independence Fund in 2007 after leaving a position in Washington DC where he worked issues for service members and the family members of severely injured veterans. The initial goal of The Independence Fund was to purchase one high tech wheel chair for a severely injured veteran. In the past year, the fund has provided more than 500 chairs.
