This is me and my grandfather. He is a Korean War veteran and has been invited to go on the Kern County Honor Flight. I would love to go on this adventure with him as his guardian. There is no cost for him
to go but they do charge for the guardians to go with the veteran. I am asking for a little help to be able to go on this amazing trip with my grandfather!
Honor Flight Kern County (HFKC) would not be successful without the generous support of our guardians.
Guardians play a vital and significant role on every trip, ensuring that every veteran has a safe and memorable experience. Duties include, but are not limited to: physically assisting the veterans at the airport, hotel, memorials, and during the flights.
Guardians pay their own travel expenses. Costs ($1,200 – subject to change) include all expenses for trip – air & ground travel, hotel & meals and any admission.
Payment is due 30 days prior to flight. All applicants may be subject to a Live Scan review as well as an interview. Being a guardian is physically strenuous as there is much walking (up to 7 miles a day), lifting, and pushing transport chair up mild inclines.
