Why Do We Do This?
Online Guardian Application
Honor Flight Historic Triangle Virginia (HFHTVA) would not be successful without the efforts and support of our Guardians. They play a critical role to ensure every veteran has a safe and memorable experience. Duties include but are not limited to physically assisting the veterans from the time of departure until their return. Guardians are required to make a minimum donation of $100 to cover the cost of their own expenses, but contributions in larger amounts are greatly appreciated. Guardians will also need to attend a mandatory training session that will be scheduled approximately two weeks before the trip. Training sessions are conducted in Richmond, Hampton and Norfolk for the convenience of Guardians. Communication is exclusively by email so Guardians must provide an email address that they monitor frequently.
HFHTVA cannot know how many guardians will be needed for any specific trip until all the applications from veterans are in and we can begin matching veterans to the most qualified guardians. You may check our website (www.HonorFlightHTVA.org) or email us any time to determine the date of the next scheduled trip. Guardians selected to go on specific trips will be notified as soon as possible, but will usually be contacted approximately four weeks prior to the scheduled date.
For further information, please contact us via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org, by phone at 1-800-619-0578 (757-655-4342 if you live in the Hampton Roads area), or you can visit our website. We thank you for your support!
