Community Outreach

The Vermont National Guard Community Relations program is established to create a better understand of what the Vermont National Guard does and who are the people of the Vermont National Guard.
Our Soldiers and Airmen can be requested to participate in public events and information events through a DD 2535 - Request for Military Aerial Support or a DD-2536 Request for Armed Forces Participation in Public Events (Non-Aviation). The Vermont National Guard State Public Affairs Office can assist you with the forms if you have any questions or concerns. They can be contacted by emailing or calling (802) 338-3000, option 3.

It is DoD policy under DoD Directives 5122.5 and 5410.18 that community relations programs be established and that command relationships be delineated throughout the Department of Defense for conducting community relations activities and programs. That policy established that fostering and furthering good relations with communities at home and abroad is in the best interest of the Department of Defense. The Department of Defense and the Military Services are public institutions. They belong to the American people and exist to serve them.

DoD facilities and personnel are located throughout the State. Vermont communities are the source of most DoD personnel recruitment and materiel procurement. A principal goal of all community relations activities is to increase understanding of U.S. defense posture and capabilities by increasing public exposure to, and understanding of, military personnel, facilities, equipment, and programs.
