Community Relations requests

COMMUNITY RELATIONS REQUESTS


Our Community Relations program aims to foster and support a relationship between Marine Forces Reserve (MARFORRES) and local, state, and National communities.  

 

The MARFORRES Public Affairs Department is responsible for processing, determining eligibility, and approving every request for a Reserve unit to support.

 

If an organization or individual is interested in requesting support from a MARFORRES unit, they are required to submit either a DD-2536 or DD-2535 form. These forms are used by the Public Affairs Department to help determine whether a request is eligible for support and to assist in coordinating details with the unit closest to the event location.


REQUEST FOR ARMED FORCES PARTICIPATION IN PUBLIC EVENTS (NON-AVIATION)
(Examples of Ground Assets: Color guards, Vehicle displays, Guest speakers, Demonstrations)

Complete form DD-2536 and submit by email to: smb.mfr.pao.comrel@usmc.mil

 Form DD-2536



REQUEST FOR MILITARY AERIAL SUPPORT
(Examples of Aviation Assets: Airshow participation, Static display)

Complete form DD-2535 and submit by email to: hqmc.comrel@usmc.mil

 Form DD-2535 


 Please submit requests 90 days prior to the event date, to give the Public Affairs Department sufficient time to determine eligibility and coordinate with the closest unit. Due to the operational tempo of Marine units, eligible events will still have to be accepted by the unit based on their availability.

 

What does the approval process look like?

 

If you are not contacted about availability of support for your event within two weeks of the event date, please call 504-697-8197 or 504-697-8308.  We respectfully request that you refrain from calling for an update on availability prior to two weeks out.
