Unfortunately, we can no longer accept guardian applications unless you are flying with a specific veteran. Please do not fill out this application unless you are flying with a veteran you already know. Thank you for your cooperation.
A Guardian serves as a trained, traveling companion to our Stars and Stripes Honor Flight participants.
- In order to serve as a guardian, applicants must be between 18-65 years of age and one generation removed from their veteran. Applicants between 65-69 years of age may be considered with a medical review from one of our doctors. In addition spouses and significant others may not serve as guardians. Guardians should be intellectually, physically, and emotionally capable of caring for their veteran. We reserve the right to refuse any guardian application.
IMPORTANT: Guardian applications MUST be completed by anyone hoping to serve as a guardian. This includes family members wanting to be paired with a specific veteran. Please write the name of the veteran you would like to accompany on your guardian application. If you meet all the requirements, we try our best to accommodate those requests.
