Instructions for Band Requests For requests and information about the USAF Band of Mid America, visit their website.
Requests for Support
Request for Special Events Participation The military belongs to the American people. Common ownership dictates Department of Defense resources be committed to supporting events and activities of mutual interest and benefit.However, limitations of time and money make it impossible to grant all requests. DOD and its subordinate agencies cannot do for one what it cannot do for all. DOD policy prohibits:
Endorsing and/or appearing to endorse a specific organization, product, or commercial service.
Using military resources when such assets are reasonably available from commercial sources and where such support would be, in fact, perceived as unfair competition.
Using military resources/personnel to increase sales, business traffic, or attendance.
Using personnel outside military bases to act as guards, parking lot attendants, runners, messengers, or baggage handlers.
Active-duty military participation in fund-raising activities, excluding the Combined Federal Campaign and military relief societies.
