  1. I would love the opportunity to be a guardian. May I please have more info on the training. Thank you Will Santiago

  2. I am a retired nurse who is in very good health and condition. My father was a WW11 vet and I would be honored to serve as a volunteer guardian. I am willing to go anywhere in the US for training.

  3. When is the next guardian training event in DC? I’d like to get started on this by spring or sooner if possible.

  4. I am Active Duty Army and work at the Pentagon. I would like to be a Guardian. When is the next training for this? Thank you!
