DD FORM 2536 (BACK), AUG 2007
INSTRUCTIONS
1. This form is used to request Armed Forces musical unit, personnel, color/
honor guard and/or exhibit/equipment participation in public events. The
requested information is required to evaluate the event. Please complete all
sections.
2. Armed Forces musical units are organized for ceremonial and traditional
purposes and to support recruiting activities. However, they may be authorized to
provide certain specified presentations, such as patriotic ceremonies, for public
programs. Armed Forces musical organizations are not permitted to provide
entertainment, background, dinner, dance or other social music at public or
private events in competition with the customary or regular employment of local
civilian musicians. Limited resources permit only one band and/or choir to
perform at an event, and the Military Services reserve the right to cancel
support to sponsors who have scheduled more than one such military unit.
3. 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 by the Military Services and
agreed to by the sponsor. Transportation and meal costs are not usually incurred
when support is provided from a local military installation. However,
circumstances may dictate that reimbursement for any or all of these costs may
be necessary. All costs are binding after a unit, personnel, or exhibit has arrived
at an event site, even though weather conditions or other unforeseen
circumstances force the event to be cancelled.
4. This form should be submitted to the appropriate Military Service (listed in right
hand column) not less than 30 nor more than 90 days in advance of a scheduled
program. 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 Department 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.
5. Additional forms may be obtained on the Internet at
http://www.dtic.mil/whs/directives/infomgt/forms/ddforms2500-2999.htm. For
legibility, event sponsors are highly encouraged to fill out applicable information
on-line prior to printing out form. Submit forms through the nearest military
installation public affairs office, or from any of the military public affairs offices
listed to the right. If you have questions regarding information required on this
form, please call the Directorate for Programs and Community Relations between
