Special Events & Volunteer Support
The Marine Aviation Training Support Group 21 (MATSG-21), Pensacola, FL, can help support the local community in a variety of ways. In general, MATSG-21 is capable of utilizing its personnel, equipment, and services in support of community events such as festivals, parades, and ceremonies. Community event organizers may request support from MATSG-21 for their event through the MATSG-21 Special Events & Volunteer Support Request (SEVR) process. By filling out either the online, electronic form, or a hardcopy DD Form 2536, event planners may provide specifics regarding event programming and support needs. Once completed and submitted with all pertinent information, the request is forwarded to the SEVR coordinator for review and approval. MATSG-21’s SEVR coordinator will contact event organizers to discuss further details and the level of support able to be provided. To contact the SEVR staff with questions regarding the process for requesting support, please refer to the contact information on our sidebar.

To request support for your event, please complete the electronic SEVR worksheet form by following the link provided below. The electronic form should be filled out as thoroughly as possible. Please ensure that you receive a confirmation page stating that you have successfully submitted your request for MATSG-21 support. Please note that your request must be submitted no later than 12:00pm on the second Tuesday of every month. Your request should be for the month following this deadline (i.e. A submitted request for an event on 12 October should be submitted NLT 12:00pm on the second Tuesday of September). Your request will be processed by our SEVR Board as soon as possible and we will contact you regarding the support we will have available for your event.

In general, MATSG-21 will not authorize support for events that fall into the following categories:

  1. Events that selectively benefit (or appear to benefit) any person, group, corporation, religion, political organization, or commercial venture, unless it is clear that the event primarily benefits the community at large or the Marine Corps in a significant capacity.
  2. Events that support, endorse, promote, or sponsor any individual, civilian enterprise, religious movement, organization, or political campaign.
  3. Events that exclude any individual of the public based on race, creed, color, sex, or national origin.
  4. Events that are clearly designed for commercial benefit.
  5. Events that utilize Marine Corps personnel for any of the following activities:

      • Ushering
      • Bag handling
      • Guarding/Security
      • Escorting individuals at events
      • As messengers
      • Attending at parking lots
      • In any similar capacity at events off military installations
      • In any demeaning or inappropriate capacity
