Guardians are essential to the success of the Honor Flight Historic Triangle Virginia Inc. Program. Without these guardians we would not be able to carry out the dreams of so many WW II veterans, enabling them to see the memorials built in their honor. During our trips, we divide the veterans into groups of eight and assign three guardians to each group. Each wheelchair bound veteran is one on one with a guardian. Even before the veterans arrive for their bus trip, the guardian's responsibilities begin with preparation and review of the veterans' packets of material. Once the veterans begin arriving, guardians will ensure that everything works smoothly. From the moment the veterans are in our hands until the point we return them to their loved ones in the evening, guardians will be asked to treat these heroes as if they are family and ensure that every veteran has a safe, memorable, and rewarding experience. Guardians are volunteers and we ask them to pay for their portion of the trip, estimated to be between $100-$125. Because of such a significant role the guardian plays in our program, we will provide a mini-training session for all guardians prior to participating in one of our trips. We would like to have at least one doctor and two nurses on each of our buses. In addition, fire, police and active duty military are also especially encouraged to volunteer to be Guardians.
