Request for Armed Forces Participation in Public Events (PDF)

To request Military Support, please consult with the Community Relations officer, (573) 563-4145, for guidance on requests for military support.

There are a number of state and federal restrictions on how we can support organizations and events. DOD policy prohibits: Endorsing or appearing to endorse a specific organization, product, or commercial service. Using military resources when such assets are reasonably available from commercial sources and where such support would be, in fact, perceived as unfair competition. Using military resources and/or personnel to increase sales, business traffic, or attendance at an event; Using personnel outside military bases to act as guards, parking lot attendants, runners, messengers, baggage handlers, or for other menial tasks; Active-duty military participation in fundraising activities, excluding the Combined Federal Campaign and military relief societies.

If you’d like to request military participation or support for your organization or special event, please read below for specific information on how and where to make your request. To request support, you MUST complete and submit a DD Form 2536 (non-aviation) no less than 45 days prior to the event. Please keep in mind that if your event occurs on a weekend or outside the normal duty day it could conflict with the off-duty time of our service members, and may be difficult to support.
