On each mission, we fly 80 Veterans, 80 wheelchairs, and 80 Guardians to help push those wheelchairs throughout the day. We rely on our guardians to help make this trip as memorable as possible for our Veterans. As a guardian, you will help escort a Veteran during the day from early morning send-off to the return home.
Guardians must be willing and able to walk long distances, assist the Veteran, experience possible heat, cold, wetness, and support a 20+ hour day.
Please know that if you are applying as a Veteran, Guardian or to be a Volunteer at an Honor Flight event, we are requiring that you have received the COVID -19 vaccinations. COVID -19 vaccination requirement will be re-evaluated in Jan 2023. As the cases rise across the country, we feel the need to protect all those involved with a mission. Thank you for understanding
For the first time we are having to increase the guardian fee due to yearly increases of flights, buses, food and other costs associated with each mission.
For this once in a life-time experience, we ask guardians to donate $500 to cover the cost of the flight. If paying via PayPal the donation is $510 to cover the service fee.
