Report your Community Service

When you attend the Post meeting, record these activities on the sheet provided at the Guard’s desk.

Following are a few examples of community service activities that qualify, some of which we all do. We will feature others from time to time:

  • Involvement in a recycling program 
  • Picking up trash along streets 
  • Volunteer time to assist in planning and conducting Veterans programs/ parades/events 
  • Any activities that promote Americanism (flag flying, public ceremonies, guest speaking engagements, and so forth)
  • Involvement in youth activities (youth sports, Scouting, etc.) 
  • Mileage you incurred while involved in community service activities
