FORT WAYNE, Ind. -- (Fort Wayne's NBC News) Thursday's salute goes out to Debbie Tucker. 

Debbie is a registered nurse at Parkview Home and Hospice.

She recently cared for a patient who told her he always wanted to go on the Honor Flight but was concerned about traveling because of his health. 

Debbie went above and beyond made sure all of his paperwork was in order and that he had all of the medical equipment he needed and worked with his physician to get him ready for the trip.

He also asked her to be his guardian on the trip and she couldn't have been more honored. 

They both had a fantastic time!
