Honor Guard/Colors Teams


As a proud part of the District of Columbia community for more than two centuries, District of Columbia National Guard Capital Guardians welcome the opportunity to connect everyone who lives, works in or visits the Nation’s Capital with the mission, capabilities and people of our Army and Air National Guard. We welcome public requests for flyovers, military bands, color and honor guards, equipment displays and speakers. Note that while we would like to support all qualifying requests for support, there is no way we could do so. If we are able, we will make every effort to take part. 



To request D.C. National Guard support that does not involve aviation assets – requests for things like military bands, color and honor guards, equipment displays, exhibits and speakers – you must complete and submit a DD Form 2536, “Request for Armed Forces Participation in Public Events (Non Aviation)” https://www.esd.whs.mil/Portals/54/Documents/DD/forms/dd/dd2536.pdf.

Deadline: This form must be completed and submitted no later than 30 days in advance of your event.

Email the completed form to the D.C. National Guard Public Affairs Office at ng.dc.dcarng.mesg.pao1@army.mil by the required deadline of 30 days in advance of your event date.

NOTE: We are not able to support all events though we will make every effort to do so as long as that support does not interfere with our District or federal missions and does not violate applicable policy or law. D.C. National Guard support or participation in an event may be cancelled by the D.C. National Guard, the U.S. Air Force or the U.S. Army without notice.
