How to Participate

Veteran Application


Honor Flight Network recognizes American veterans for your sacrifices and achievements by flying you to Washington, D.C. to see YOUR memorial at no cost. Top priority (for which we are currently accepting applications) is given to World War II and terminally ill veterans from all wars.

In the future, HVHF will be expanded to include Korean War and Vietnam War veterans. Applications from these veterans will be kept on file and they will be notified when we begin to accept applications from their wars. We do not currently have a timeline for when this will occur. In order for Honor Flight Network to achieve this goal, guardians fly with the veterans on every flight providing assistance and helping veterans have a safe, memorable and rewarding experience.

For what you and your comrades have sacrificed, please consider this a small token of appreciation from all of us at Hudson Valley Honor Flight.

It is truly a privilege flying you to Washington, D.C. to visit and reflect at the memorials built in your honor.

If you know of someone who is a World War II veteran or a veteran with a terminal illness, please fill out an application and send it in or submit an online application form.

**Please note: While the application asks if you have a guardian that would like to accompany you on the trip, we do have many WILLING, EAGER guardians on our waiting list who would love the privilege of escorting one of our veterans. Providing your own guardian is NOT required. See below for more information on becoming a guardian.**

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 $400. 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.
