Request for Fort Hunter Liggett Support in Community Events

Complete DD Form 2536, Request for Armed Forces Participation in Public Events (Non-Aviation) to request support and return it to the Fort Hunter Liggett PAO at least 30 days prior to your event.

Units at Fort Hunter Liggett are Reserve Forces and only train one weekend out of the month usually. Soldiers' participation are on volunteer basis and only if it does not impede on their mission.

Authorized military participation is limited to:

  • military functions
  • official civil ceremonies and functions sponsored and conducted by Federal, State, county, and municipal governments
  • civilian-sponsored public events intended to stimulate interest in the Armed Forces, support the Army recruiting mission, stimulate patriotism, or celebrate a national holiday.

For information about military bands and to find a band located close to the event, refer to the Army Bands Online website here.


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 Dept. of Defense 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.


Department of Defense policies require that Armed Forces participation in public events will be provided at no additional cost to the Government. The sponsor is required to pay, when necessary, the standard military services allowance for quarters and meals for all Armed Forces participants and for other services which have been determined in advance and agreed to by the sponsor.
