The Community Relations Branch

at Headquarters Marine Corps (HQMC) is committed to coordinating community outreach worldwide. Marines, as they are involved within their local communities, develop stronger bonds with businesses, sports teams, and other organizations.


Marines are involved in many ways where they live and work. One way is through aviation, band, and all other non-aviation requests from the community. Another is through outreach events/programs such as Marine Week, Marine Corps Executive Forum, and more.

The AV-8B Harrier and the MV-22 Osprey flight demonstration is one of the most sought-after aerial demonstrations offered by the U.S. military. Demonstrations are performed by the same aircraft and Marines who train and deploy in support of real-world contingencies. For this reason, Headquarters Marine Corps selects a handful of events to receive the coveted demonstration during the annual AV-8B Harrier and  MV-22 Osprey Flight Demonstration Board.
