Utah National Guard Community Support
Request Military Support
Thank you for visiting the Community Support Web page and for considering our involvement in your event. This program receives, evaluates legality, determines supportability and facilitates support for community events.
To increase public awareness and understanding of the Utah National Guard's state 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. Instructions for requesting assistance can be found below.
ALL REQUESTS FOR MILITARY SUPPORT MUST BE RECEIVED 60 DAYS PRIOR TO YOUR EVENT.
A customer may be responsible for some costs of support. Reimbursement for support will be handled on a case-by-case basis. You will be notified prior to receiving support if reimbursement is required.
Military Support Request Process
Non – Aerial Support
You may request military participation such as the 23rd Army Band, color guard, displays of military equipment, etc., using a signed DD Form 2536 Request for Armed Forces Participation in Public Events.
Aerial Support Process
Utah Army National Guard flyover requests require an exception to policy. To start the official request process for flyovers or air shows, fill out a DD Form 2535 Request for Military Aerial Support and submit to the Utah National Guard 90 days prior to the event. Please ensure the following sections and boxes are completed before submitting your request to the Utah National Guard. Doing so will help expedite the request process.
A cursory review of your request by a Community Support specialist will occur before being forwarded for (1) the Staff Judge Advocate review, (2) the U.S. Property and Fiscal Accounting Office review, (3) and finally The Adjutant General of Utah for final approval. If your request is deemed not authorized by military regulations or unsupportable at this point, you will be notified by email or phone.
After being classified as an approved and supportable request, your request will be referred to a Utah National Guard unit that possesses the asset(s) you are requesting. Even though a request is deemed legal, support is still dependent upon the availability of personnel/equipment and it may not conflict with regularly scheduled training or missions. Once the unit has advised the Community Support section of acceptance and ability to execute the mission, you will be contacted directly by the supporting unit. Please provide an e-mail address for further communications. Due to high demand and limited resources, all accepted support requests are still considered tentative until executed.
Following an Event
As a condition of support, please mail or e-mail us a follow-up letter with the total attendance at your event and any feedback you have on the support that was provided, to include the handling and processing of your request.

Guidelines and Regulations
Per Army Regulation 360-1 the Utah National Guard is unable to participate in fundraising events of non-federal entities outside of the exemptions listed under section 3-2, DOD 5500.7-R and AR 600-29.
Additionally, the event must be open to the general public. If these requirements are not met, providing support could be viewed as an implied endorsement of a non- federal entity contractor.
