Due to liability limitations and the physical requirements of assisting Veterans the age limit for Guardians of any gender is 18-65 years of age.
If a Veteran requires a wheelchair for mobility during the trip we ask the Veteran to bring their own.
We have a limited number of wheelchairs that we can make available on any one trip.
If a Veteran can obtain a wheelchair from a local fraternal organization such as VFW, American Legion, AMVETS, DAV, VA Hospital so much the better.
Contact with our office will assure the needs of the Veteran are met.
About 15-20% of Veterans we have transported over the past five years were in wheelchairs and so we order deluxe motor coaches equipped to handle wheelchairs.
A Veteran must provide their own oxygen (gas or concentrator) to the departure airport.
Oxygen bottles are strictly forbidden to be carried on board the airplane by the FAA and the Airline; therefore, an Oxygen Concentrator that is powered by batteries must be utilized.
There are no facilities aboard the airplane for the utilization of a Portable Oxygen Concentrator that plugs into an electric outlet.
If the Veteran does not own their own concentrator, contact the primary supplier of the Veteran’s gaseous oxygen for the loan of a concentrator and the charging system for the batteries.
Once the Veteran reaches the destination he/she will be provided gaseous oxygen by the Honor Flight at no cost to the Veteran for the trip to the memorials, and his/her return to the airport while the oxygen concentrator batteries are recharged at the airport.
When the Veteran returns to the airport for the trip home he/she will be given back the oxygen concentrator and battery charging system and will return the gaseous oxygen bottles to airport personnel. Upon the Veterans arrival home he/she may resort back to their normal oxygen supply.
To ensure the Veteran will have ample oxygen for his/her use the Veteran must supply the Honor Flight with a doctor’s prescription indicating the oxygen flow rate, frequency and the delivery system.
