Become a GSLHF Volunteer

The only way to truly understand and appreciate the richness of the Honor Flight experience is to participate in a flight.

Often it’s not the planned part of the day that yields the most dramatic memories. It’s the spontaneous standing ovation as the group walks down the airport concourse. Or maybe it’s the active duty personnel who take time to visit and salute their older counterparts. There are moments that you will simply never forget.

We need volunteers to assist with a variety of tasks, from departure to arrival logistics, to administering travel details, to communicating with our veterans as the trip approaches. There are many opportunities to help.

If you’re interested in becoming part of our team, please fill out the Volunteer Application.

Become a GSLHF Guardian

Guardians play an instrumental role in the success of our Honor Flight trips. Each veteran is paired with a guardian for the day, a person who is tasked with making sure that the veteran has a safe and memorable experience. Duties include, but are not limited to: physically assisting the veterans at the airport, during the flight and at the memorials. Guardians must be at least 18 and no more than 64 years of age and be able to easily lift 100 pounds. Guardians are also responsible for covering the expenses for their own trip.

If you are interested in becoming a guardian for one of our Honor Flights, please fill out the Guardian Application.

“I am so glad I went because getting these feelings out I believe will help me settle the Vietnam War that has been buried in my mind for 52 years. Over the years I have asked God how to deal with this issue and I believe he has answered my prayers through your organization.”
