Community Relations

Fort Lee takes an active interest in improving the quality of life in our communities and supporting local government, civic and non-profit organizations. Our community relations branch coordinates requests for support and shares information with Fort Lee friends and neighbors in a variety of ways:

Community Requests for Fort Lee Support/Assets

Color Guard

Fort Lee is honored to support community events with guest speakers, color guards, music, and other patriotic displays.  Government organizations, civic groups, schools and community-based organizations may request military assets for their ceremonies and special events. When available, the 392nd Army Band at Fort Lee supports community events with patriotic or military music. Background, dinner, dance or other social music is not authorized.  All requests for support must comply with DoD and Army Regulations to be granted.  Fill out the Request for Support Form and return to Fort Lee Garrison Public Affairs for consideration.
