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.
