The First and Second Companies of the Governor’s Foot Guard are historic state military organizations founded during the Revolutionary War era, and are comprised of a group of men and women volunteers, dedicating their time and services to the Governor and the citizens of the state of Connecticut.

​To request the Connecticut Governor's Foot and Horse Guards, event organizers should submit a completed General Support Request Form DD2536.

Requests should be submitted 60 days prior to the event. All members of the Governor’s Foot and Horse Guards are volunteers, and less than 60 days notice greatly reduces the chance that volunteer support will be available.

Requests received 60 days or closer to the event generally are NOT considered.

 Thank you for your interest in military support for your event. We take pride in supporting our local communities and hope to be able to promote the positive attributes of military service at your event.

If you don't find the answers you need here, or you have other questions, please call the Connecticut National Guard Directorate of Military Support.

360 Broad St
Hartford, CT 06105

Please complete one of the following forms and submit no later than 60 days in advance to allow for proper planning of support from our military units. While requests within 60 days will always be considered, we are rarely able to accommodate due to the short notice.
