Unfortunately, we can no longer accept guardian applications unless you are flying with a specific veteran.
Guardians are the crucial support system for the success of this program. They are the most privileged of our volunteers because they will spend the most quality time with our heroes. Guardians must be one generation younger than the veteran.
Each Guardian is responsible for one Veteran from the moment they arrive at Hubert H. Humphrey Terminal 2, to the time they are returned safely back to the airport in the late evening. Guardians assist the veterans with their individual needs, to ensure the veterans have a safe and memorable day. It is an emotionally fulfilling and rewarding experience to be able escort our WWII and Korean War Heroes.
Each guardian is asked to donate $500 to participate in the flight. To fully prepare for the responsibility, they are required to complete a brief, but comprehensive training session prior to the scheduled flight.
