Honor Flight would not be successful without the generous support of our Guardians. Guardians play a significant role on every trip, ensuring that every veteran has a safe and memorable experience. Guardians MUST be 2nd Generation or younger and able-bodied. Same generation spouses may NOT serve as Guardians. The primary responsibility of a Guardian is the physical safety and security of one or more Veterans - helping up and down steps, off buses, wheeling Veterans up and down ramps, and physically handling equipment and baggage. This is a physical, working trip for Guardians. Mature teens, adults and 'sturdy' retirees are welcomed to serve as Guardians. Guardian applications must be submitted at least 8 weeks prior to flight and should be submitted at the same time Veterans apply to go. Guardians are also responsible for a significant contribution to expenses to cover airline fare, travel, etc. (the current cost for a Guardian is $750).
