Community Event Support
Through positive Community Relations efforts, the Massachusetts National Guard can educate the citizens of Massachusetts about the role of the National Guard and foster a better understanding of our mission.
 
While the Massachusetts National Guard has a permanent presence in more than 40 communities throughout the commonwealth, we strive to support and participate in events all across the state that benefit the citizens of the commonwealth and give them insight into their National Guard. Among the different types of support the Massachusetts National Guard can provide are: color guards; static displays; flyovers; and support to parades, dedications, fairs and others events.
