Guardian Application

We are not accepting Guardian Applications.  If you are interested in flying with a veteran, please include your information on their Veteran 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.

Badger Honor Flight assigns every Veteran a guardian.  If a Veteran wishes not to choose their own guardian, we will assign one of our trained volunteers to perform this role.

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.

Badger Honor Flight’s Guardian Requirements:

  • No spouses are eligible to be Guardians
  • Must be between ages of 18 – 69
  • Must be willing and able to assist all Veterans as needed
  • Must be able to lift 100 pounds
  • Must be physically capable of performing the Guardian Role
    • No use of canes, crutches, walkers, slings, back issues, etc.
    • Must be able to push a wheelchair up an incline
  • Must attend Mandatory Guardian Training
  • Guardian pays for their own trip. The price for the trip is $500.

Because they play such a significant role in our program, Badger Honor Flight reserves the right to disqualify any Guardian based upon the requirements listed above.

If you have additional questions, please contact our Guardian Representative at (608) 616-0243 or via email at: info@badgerhonorflight.org
