Honor Flight Houston would not be successful without the generous support of our guardians. Guardians play a significant role on every trip, ensuring that every veteran has a safe and memorable experience. Du-ties include, but not limited to, physically assisting the veterans at the airport, during the flight, and at the memorials. Guardians are also responsible for a donation of $720.00 to assist with airline fare, hotel, etc..) For further information, please contact us at 713-565-2685 or visit us at www.HonorFlightHouston.org
