Request for DOD/Armed Forces Participation in Public Events Form (Non-Aviation) 

This form is used to request a National Anthem Singer, STEM Judge, Drill Competition Judge, Science Fair Judge, and/or DOD Equipment for participation in public events.

Instructions: 

  • You cannot save information on the form and come back to it later. Allow yourself 15-20 minutes to complete.
  • Submitting this request constitutes that you have read, understand, and agree to the following.
  1. Submitting this request does not guarantee participation.
  2. This form should be submitted not less than 45 days in advance of a scheduled program. Final determination will occur no earlier than 90 days in advance. Please realize that all Armed Forces units have specific military missions and training requirements. Participation in public programs will only be authorized when such support is in the best interests of the DOD and the Military Services and does not interfere with mission or training programs. In all cases, operational commitments must take priority and can cause previously scheduled appearances to be cancelled.
  3. In order to be considered, I must answer each question on this application. I understand that my request will not be processed until each question is answered. Unanswered questions will result in a delay and are subject to disapproval.
  4. I will spell out each acronym.
  5. DOD Participation is subject to last-minute cancellation due to mission requirements with little-or- no notice. A back-up plan is highly recommended.
  6. I certify I am 18-years-old or older.
  7. I am acting on behalf of the requesting organization and certify that the information provided is complete and accurate to the best of my knowledge. I understand that representatives from the military services will contact me to discuss arrangements and costs involved prior to final commitments, or to inform me of their inability to support this event. I also understand that operational commitments must take priority and can preclude a scheduled appearance at an approved public activity.
