Honor Flight of Central Oregon (HFCO) flights would not be possible 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. Guardians must be able-bodied and capable of assisting a veteran throughout their trip. Note: Spouses or “significant others” of Veterans traveling on the flight are not eligible to apply as Guardians.
The primary responsibility of a Guardian is the physical safety and security of one or more veterans:
- Helping up and down stairs
- Helping on and off buses
- Pushing wheelchairs up and down ramps
- Physically handling equipment and baggage
This is a physical, working trip for Guardians to ensure our veterans are served with the dignity and honor they have earned.
Guardians are responsible for the cost of their travel with the group $1500.00 (covers air transportation, hotels, meals, etc.).
Effective May 2025, TSA will require certain forms of identification for airline travel (ie Real ID). Access the TSA website here https://www.tsa.gov/real-id to ensure you have approved ID.
Our September 20 – 23, 2023 flight is full. We are now accepting Guardian Applications for September 2024.
Guardian Payment ($1500).
