The Fort Rucker Public Affairs Office is responsible for all aspects of command information, media relations and public/community relations pertaining to the installation. Garrison public affairs professionals disseminate information to Soldiers, Families and Fort Rucker employees on the installation as well as to our surrounding communities that make up the Wiregrass region. PAO produces the installation digital newspaper, the Army Flier, and manages all digital media content including the installation website, Facebook and Twitter.
