Garrison Public Affairs Office

Public Affairs serves the general public, internal military audience and civilian counterparts, leaders, international viewers and other forums by ensuring the free flow of news and information in a timely manner limited only by national security constraints, valid statutory mandates or exemptions as authorized by the Department of Defense’s E.O. 12958 and Army Regulation 360-1.

Our motto is “Maximum disclosure, minimum delay.” As Public Affairs professionals, we strive to keep our audience informed by being the credible, official source of information for the U.S. Army.

The Public Affairs Office (PAO) supports the Garrison Command in the areas of:


Media Relations

Responds to media queries, conducts press conferences, produces media advisories, escorts media, and assists with the dissemination of information to Soldiers, families and civilians on post and to people living in local communities. We also offer media and social media training.

In media relations, we understand that news today is immediate, ever-changing and global. We will do our best to meet deadlines and provide information as soon as it becomes available and releasable. 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.
