As a result of Sequestration, all support to public events must meet all guidelines for support as outlined by the Department of Defense for the remainder of the fiscal year 2013. Support to public and military events is provided at no additional cost to the taxpayer using allotted training hours which are now entirely dedicated to support readiness needs of the units.
This policy may change after the end of the fiscal year.
The Tennessee National Guard can provide speakers for Veteran's Day, Armed Forces Day and Memorial Day public observances, and can also provide speakers for many other appropriate public events. National Guard personnel can speak on a wide variety of topics including: Military Support to Civil Authorities, Military Avaition, Leadership, Education Opportunities, Family Readiness and Support, Military Law, Military History, Military Medicine, Public Relations, and Journalism.
To request a speaker from the Tennessee National Guard, event organizers should submit a completed DD Form 2536 (request for Armed Forces Participation in Public Events) no later than 30 days prior to the event to:
Tennessee National Guard Public Affairs Office
