Thank you for visiting the D.C. National Guard and for considering our involvement in your event. Through an active community support program, we take pride in supporting the District of Columbia and strive to demonstrate that the D.C. National Guard is a good neighbor and community partner. The Guard and its Soldiers and Airmen are extensively involved in local community organizations and often participate in, or support, the events they sponsor. Numerous federal statutes, however, restrict the ways in which we can support organizations and events. The D.C. National Guard Public Affairs Office receives, evaluates legality, determines suitability, and facilitates support for community events. To increase public awareness and understanding of the D.C. National Guard's local and federal missions. All efforts are made to support legal requests for assistance, however regulatory guidance specifies the type of the support we may provide.
Please complete an Aerial Support Request Form DD2535 or a General Support Request Form DD2356 and submit to the below email or street address no later than 60 days in advance to allow for proper planning of support from our military units. While requests within 60 days will always be considered, we are rarely able to accommodate due to the short notice.
No Cost to Government
Department of Defense Policies requires that Armed Forces participation in public events will be provided at no additional cost to the Government. The sponsor is required to pay, when necessary, the standard military services allowances for quarters and meals for all Armed Forces participants, as well as for other services which have been determined in advance and agreed to by the sponsor prior to the event.
