National Honor Guard Commanders Association
In addition to providing a list of Honor Guard Units nationwide, this web-site will contain as many additional sources of information that may be helpful to your Honor Guard. We will include any link or document such as SOG's, funeral response guidelines, equipment or uniform vendors and training materials. These are suggested resources that you may use or adopt for your unit. If you have anything that you think may be of use to other Honor Guards, please feel free to e-mail us. If you have date specific information, send us that information as well so that we can include it on the home page under News & Events.
