Community Support Requests
*Until COVID-19 mitigation efforts are lifted, the Ohio National Guard has placed a hold on approving or participating in all public/community relations events through June 30, 2020.
MOVING FORWARD: The Ohio National Guard will acknowledge receipt of requests, but withhold approval until Gov. DeWine, working in concert with the Ohio Department of Health, determines it is safe to resume community events and engagements.
The Ohio National Guard is a proud member of communities throughout Ohio in which our Soldiers and Airmen serve. Through an active community relations program, the Ohio National Guard demonstrates it is a good neighbor and community partner by providing support in three basic areas:
Non-Aviation, Army Aviation and Air Force Aviation.
The Ohio National Guard will make every effort to provide support for your event, but organizers should be aware that support may not be available due to military needs, and/or state or federal restrictions on how the Ohio National Guard is permitted to support organizations and events.
The Ohio National Guard Public Affairs Office approves all support requests.
Please call 614-336-4499 should you have questions regarding your request.
