West Virginia National Guard Support to organizations and special events

The West Virginia National Guard is a proud member of communities throughout West Virginia in which our Soldiers and Airmen serve. Through an active community relations program, the West Virginia National Guard demonstrates it is a good neighbor and community partner by providing support in four basic areas: Non-Aviation, Military Aerial, Air Force Fly Overs, and Speaker Requests. (see outline below)

 

*Note that most support requests require a 90 day notice prior to the event (unless stated specifically) to be reviewed, validated and considered for support. Requests received fewer than 90 days are unlikely to receive support.

The West Virginia National Guard will make every effort to provide support for all events, but event organizers should be aware that support may not be available for military mission requirements may prevent the West Virginia National Guard from supporting specific events and that there are a number of state and federal restrictions on how the West Virginia National Guard can support organizations and events.
