Guardian Application

Hudson Valley Honor Flight GUARDIAN Application

.

Hudson Valley 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. Duties include physically assisting the veterans at the airport, during the flight and at the memorials. Guardians are typically assigned more than one veteran. On top of supporting our veterans on flight day, guardians also subsidize the cost of our flight by paying their own way. The cost to be a guardian is $500. Please make checks payable to Hudson Valley Honor Flight or HVHF. Checks WILL NOT be cashed without consent until you have been accepted onto our next flight. Due to the fact that family members of our veterans are given priority, there is no guarantee that filling out this application will reserve you a spot on the upcoming flight. However, you will immediately be placed on our waiting list, which will carry over to future flights.
