The Public Affairs Office (PAO) supports the garrison by communicating on behalf of the installation and its leadership - providing clear, accurate, timely information to internal & external audiences. We employ a variety of communication strategies - including Media Relations, Community Relations, and Command Information products.

Media Relations
Responds to media queries, conducts press conferences, produces media advisories, escorts media, and assists with the dissemination of information to service members and their families employees on post and to people living in local communities. We ask that anyone acting in a professional media capacity contact public affairs to obtain information or set up interviews with experts. This will ensure that information is factual and accurate.
