Presidential Inaugurations

United States of America

The Joint Task Force-National Capital Region (JTF-NCR) plans, coordinates and provides authorized and approved Department of Defense (DoD) ceremonial and public affairs support for presidential inaugurations.

As the official DoD liaison, JTF-NCR works with the Joint Congressional Committee on Inaugural Ceremonies (JCCIC) and the Presidential Inaugural Committee (PIC) to coordinate and conduct military ceremonial support at Inaugural events. The command also collects, compiles, organizes, and provides historical perspective on the parade participant application process to the PIC – who is the only entity authorized to select participants for the Inaugural Parade.
