Joint Public Affairs Office (JPAO)


The Joint Public Affairs Office provides an important link between the Tennessee Military Department and our surrounding community.


The JPAO produces print, web, and video content that keeps us connected to our fellow Tennessee residents.



The Tennessee National Guard Community Relations Division welcomes the opportunity to connect our communities with the mission and capabilities of the Tennessee Army and Air National Guard. We are pleased to offer the resources for the American public to request flyovers, military bands, color/honor guards, exhibit displays and speakers.



To request any of these resources:


Please fill out a DD FORM 2536 (Non-Aviation) or DD FORM 2535 and send it to the Joint Public Affairs Office via mail, email or fax.
