Telling the Whiteman AFB story ...

Public Affairs is the focal point for providing information on Whiteman issues, programs and base events to Airmen, the community and members of the news media. 

The staff conducts base tours, provides speakers for civic organizations in the community, and is the commander's liaison between the base and local media organizations. 

All media requests concerning Whiteman people, programs and events must be coordinated through Public Affairs.

The U.S. Air Force engages in Public Affairs to provide trusted counsel to leaders; build, maintain, and strengthen Airman morale and readiness; enhance public trust and support, and achieve global influence and deterrence.

Public Affairs seeks to inform decision makers and communicate the service's requirements, capabilities, actions and achievements, to the world and keeps the Whiteman community fully informed with complete and accurate information. Our programs are designed to increase public understanding of the Whiteman mission.
