Eligible Organizations & Events for Military Support
Organizations eligible for military support include federal, state and local governments, and certain private (non-profit) institutions when the activity concerned is conducted for the betterment of the community and does not selectively benefit any one individual or organization. Preferred activities for support are those which stimulate patriotism, promote public understanding of the problems of national security, or foster public appreciation of our national heritage. Events must be open and advertised to the public. Federal law and military regulations prohibit military agencies from competing with services available from commercial sources in the private sector. Use of government equipment and/or personnel in support of a private enterprise, whether profit or non-profit, or for promotional events of a select organization’s commercial activity or concern, is strictly prohibited by regulation.
