> Mission

  •  We create a ready and resilient platform for troops.
  •  We develop leaders and the workforce.
  •  We aim to provide a first-class protection program.
  •  We deliver the best customer service.
  •  We plan, coordinate, and execute restructure, consolidation and re-stationing.
As a matter of policy, we cover events based on these priorities. Our time is spent on helping the community with news they can use. In the PAO shop, this translates into this shared goal: We aim to provide you the resources and news you need to live comfortably and enjoy your time in beautiful Bavaria.
