Director of Military Support

Due to fiscal and legal constraints implemented by the Department of Defense in response to budget cuts, the Maine National Guard's support for non-emergency community events will be reduced for the foreseeable future. The Maine National Guard will continue accepting requests and will do its best to support when possible. Though reduced in scope, the community relations program will remain an important aspect of our service to the great state of Maine and we hope to continue this tradition of service to our communities.

Due to the increase in Military Support Requests and the time it takes to process these requests, we will no longer be processing requests that are submitted less than 90 days prior to the requested date of execution. We apologize for any inconvenience that this causes you or your organization.
