The Media Relations Branch assists members of the news media in reporting on Fort Drum, ensuring members of the American public have access to the information they need to understand the military's role in the community, in support of the nation, and in the world.

Members of the media who would like to visit Fort Drum, interview Soldiers, or cover a particular event must go through the Public Affairs Office. All questions should be directed to the media relations officer at (315) 772-9043.


Reporting on Fort Drum

Fort Drum is a military installation. For security reasons, installation access rules require a public affairs escort to be present any time members of the media conduct news-gathering activities on post. For invited events, media should RSVP in accordance with the instructions provided in the media advisory to coordinate a public affairs escort onto the installation.

For other stories, news media representatives may request assistance from the Media Relations Branch. Requests are granted as resources and DoD regulations allow.

Service members and military Family Members who are interested in engaging the media are welcome to contact our office for assistance.
