Honor Flight of the Quad Cities
Select the Application Below that Applies to your Situation...
In 2008, The Quad Cities formed a local chapter of the Honor Flight Network, called Honor Flight of the Quad Cities (HFQC). The purpose of HFQC is to fly America’s veterans to Washington, D.C. to visit the memorials dedicated to honoring their sacrifices.
Guardians are essential to the success of the Honor Flight Program. Typically during our trips, we divide the veterans into groups of eight and assign three guardians to each group. Even before the veterans arrive at the airport, the guardian's responsibilities begin with flight preparation and going over their packets of material. Once the veterans start to arrive, guardians will ensure boarding passing and IDs are available, distribute Honor Flight tee shirts, get the veterans through security and to the gate, assist in boarding, etc. From the moment the veterans are in our hands until the point we return them to their loved ones in the evening, guardians will be asked to treat these heroes as if they are family and ensure that every veteran has a safe, memorable, and rewarding experience. Guardians are volunteers and are expected to pay for their trip. We will provide mini-training sessions for all guardians prior to participating in one of our trips. For more information or to inquire about costs, please email or call Bob Morrison at (563) 388-3271.
Examples of volunteer positions include being at the airport to send off the veterans in the morning and then being there at the end of the trip to welcome them home with a cheering reception; office help with answering phones and entering application info into the data system; mailing out of requested material and purchased merchandise; contacting veterans and guardians and making arrangements based on our projected flight schedules. If you would like to volunteer your services, please contact us and join us making the dreams of our veterans a reality. You can make a difference. Thank You for your support.
