A new look for 2020 and our 15th anniversary!

As we prepare for our 15th anniversary in April of 2020 we are incredibly excited to release our newly redesigned website.    Additionally, we have changed our web presence as well with a web address change.  We are now located at hgcstraining.org rather than milwaukeehonorguardclinic.org.

For the family, with honor, respect, and compassion
