The covenant encourages people to support the services in their area and promote understanding and awareness of issues affecting military personnel.

Though Swale does not have a military base it does have a number of charities, organisations and associations made up of current or retired members including veterans and bereaved families.

There are also a number of cadet units in the borough.
