Unfortunately we are no longer accepting Guardian Applications. If you are interested in flying with a veteran, please include your information on their application.
Guardians are essential to the success of the Honor Flight Network Program. Without these volunteers, we would not be able to carry out the dreams of so many veterans, enabling them to see the memorials built in their honor.
We assign every veteran a guardian. A guardian may be assigned up to two veterans.
Guardian responsibilities include but not limited to: Assist veterans get their boarding passes, lanyard badges, and jackets at check-in. Ensure veteran IDs are available and help get the veterans through security and to the gate. Assist in boarding/unboarding the airplane and buses, going up/down escalators, and in the bathrooms.
From the moment the veterans are in our hands until we return them to their loved ones in the evening, guardians will be asked to treat these heroes as if they are family and ensure that every veteran has a safe, memorable, and rewarding experience.
Guardians are volunteers and are expected to pay for their trip. The price for the trip is $500.
Because they play such a significant role in our program, all of our guardians must attend a mandatory training session prior to participating in one of our trips and must meet the physical requirements as determined by Badger Honor Flight.
