Honor Guard Training in your Hands!

The DrillMaster Education and Training System: Honor Guard Training- The Honor Guard Manual
The Honor Guard Manual is the only complete published manual for police, firefighter, EMS, cadet, veteran and fraternal honor guard units. Based on the joint service standard with much of the standard being from the Air Force Honor Guard, this manual is the culmination of my training with the USAF Honor Guard, 17+ years of honor guard duty with Base Honor Guard units around the world and 2 years of extensive research and writing.

Detailed text and dozens of pictures fully explain all movements for any honor guard unit. There are lesson plans at the back of the book and also complete training documents that, when you purchase the book, you are then authorized to own and use the electronic version of the documents by contacting me. I then send the documents to you in PDF.
