Honor Flight would not be successful without the aid and support of guardians.  Guardians play a significant role on every trip ensuring that every Veteran has a safe and memorable experience.  Duties include, but are not limited to, physically assisting the Veterans at the airports, during the flights, and at the memorials.

NOTE:  Guardians should be aged 18-75 (guardians not between the ages of 18 and 75 are subject to individual review and approval by Honor Flight Maine), in good health, cannot be a spouse, partner, or significant other, and are requested to make a donation of $500 at least one week prior to the trip to help partially defray the costs of their travel expenses.

The primary responsibility of a Guardian is the physical safety and security of one or more Veterans, helping them up and down steps on the buses, wheeling Veterans up and down ramps, and physically handling equipment and baggage.  This is a physical, working trip for guardians.
