    One of the most important responsibilities on any Honor Flight is that of the Guardian. From the time we board the plane at Cedar Rapids in the morning until the return at night, the Guardian is responsible for his/her Veteran. Of these responsibilities the most important is the safety and welfare of the veteran. Attend to his/her needs to make this day one of the most memorable days in their lives.
