Donation: As a guardian, you must agree to donate $1,400.00 as determined by the Lake County Honor Flight Board of Directors. This donation is due within 5 days of being assigned to your flight. Your donation is tax-deductible.
Age Limit: Guardians must be under 73 years old.
Health and Approval: Guardians must be in good health and approved by the Lake County Honor Flight Trip Director.
Eligibility: Spouses, domestic partners, or significant others of veterans are not eligible to serve as their assigned guardians.
Training: Once assigned to a mission, you must attend a mandatory guardian training course. Currently, only in-person training is available, and it is conducted on a specific date. Please note that makeup dates for the training are not possible.
If you are applying to be the guardian of a specific veteran, you must be at least 15 years younger and one generation removed from that veteran.
Lake County Honor Flight reserves the right to request reference(s) from any guardian applying to participate in the program.
Without guardians, Honor Flight could not be possible. Thank you for your commitment to “serve those who have served us.”
Thank you for supporting our veterans!
