Notes on Requests:
- Your request should be submitted 90 days prior to the event to be considered for support. Less than 90 days notice greatly reduces the chance that support will be available. Requests received within 15 days of the event will NOT be considered.
- Once the Government Affairs Office receives your request, it will be reviewed to determine your events eligibility. If approved, your request will be forwarded to an appropriate unit to determine resource availability
- Availability depends on training schedules, mission requirements and personnel. Approval of your request does not guarantee resource availability
