Ohio National Guard Community Relations

Support to organizations and special events

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 four basic areas: Non-Aviation, Military Aerial, Air Force Flyovers, and Speaker Requests.

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 reviews and validates all support requests.
