Public Affairs fulfills the Army's obligation to keep the American people and the Army informed, and helps to establish the conditions that lead to confidence in America's Army and its readiness to conduct operations in peacetime, conflict and war.

Public Affairs is the interface between Fort Wainwright and the public.

Media Relations

All news media representatives who wish to enter Fort Wainwright on official business and/or to cover events must first coordinate with and request permission through the Public Affairs Office. News media also must be escorted by a member of the Public Affairs Office. Due to the limited number of public affairs staff to provide escort, media are asked to make their requests as far in advance as possible.

Community Relations

The Community Relations Division communicates Soldiers' stories by directly engaging a wide spectrum of businesses, organizations, and local community and education leaders to bring the American people closer to the Soldiers who serve them.

Command Information

Command Information assists the commander in keeping the command's internal audience informed of events and policies while providing timely, accurate, truthful, two-way communication between the commander and the command's internal audiences. An avenue to tell the Soldier's story and to stay informed of command events.
