Public Affairs Mission

Mission

Andersen Air Force Base Public Affairs' mission is to advance Air Force priorities and achieve mission objectives through integrated planning, execution, and assessment of communication capabilities. Through strategic and responsive release of accurate and useful information and imagery to Air Force, domestic, and international audiences, PA puts operational actions into context; facilitates the development of informed perceptions about Air Force operations; helps undermine adversarial propaganda efforts; and contributes to the achievement of national, strategic, and operational objectives.


The Public Affairs office contributes information to the following:

Public Affairs Media Operations

Andersen Air Force Base is a non-public news gathering forum and as such, all civilian media must have approval and a Public Affairs escort prior to entering the base. The 36th Wing PA Media Operations team will make arrangements to meet civilian media prior to their arrival at the Main Gate of Andersen AFB.

Media interested in covering Andersen activities should call 671-366-4202 M-F 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. to arrange for an escort and for detailed information regarding upcoming media opportunities. The office has a 24-hour on-call PA representative who can be reached by calling  the 36th Wing Command Post at 671-366-2981.

Media Operations. Facilitates engagement and two-way communication with the service members and the media, which is often one of the most rapid and credible means of delivering the commander’s message. Remaining open, honest, and accessible to the maximum extent possible normally results in greater accuracy, context, and timeliness in communicating with internal and external audiences. Personnel assigned to Andersen whether permanent or deployed will coordinate all official media requests and queries through the 36 WG/PA office.

Engaging the media: The 36th Wing Public Affair’s Media Operations office is available to help service members be a better, more confident, more prepared ambassador of the U.S. Air Force.

Social Media

Social Media for Airmen

In general, the Air Force views social media sites positively and respects your rights as Americans to use them to express yourself. However, by the nature of your profession, you are always on the record and must represent our core values. Air Force Instruction 1-1, Air Force Standards, outlines how Airmen should conduct themselves on social networking websites. Here are a few things to remember when communicating online via social media as an Airman: 

  • You are personally responsible for what you say and post on social networking services and any other medium.
  • All Airmen are on duty 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, and their actions on and off duty are subject to the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ).
  • Consider how a post can be interpreted by the public. Be cautious about crossing the line between funny and distasteful. If you have doubts about whether you should post something, err on the side of caution. If the post in question concerns the Air Force, discuss the proposed post with your supervisor or your local public affairs office.
  • Maintain appropriate communication and conduct with officer and enlisted personnel, peers, superiors and subordinates (to include civilian superiors and subordinates).

Please refer to the Air Force Social Media Guide for more information.

 

Flightline Photo Authorization Requests

Photography on the Andersen Air Force Base flight line

The following are necessary security and safety procedures for control of photography on the Andersen AFB flight line.

Photography and videography on the flight line is not permitted without written approval from the 36th Operations Support Squadron Commander and the 36th Operations Group Commander. Personnel will follow major design series approval process letter guidance, which states all individuals, must seek authorization to access and photograph areas of the flight line and they will have Public Affairs review all imagery prior to public release.

Personnel desiring to capture imagery on the flight line must request a FPAL by emailing the Andersen Air Force Base Public Affairs office 36wg.pa2@us.af.mil at least 20-duty days in advance. Units requesting group passes must submit their requests at least 30-duty days in advance. 


Flight line photo and/or video passes will only be issued to personnel that have a valid flight line restricted area badge.  Civilians and personnel without flight line badges must have an escort or be placed on an Entry Authorization Letter for the restricted area they wish to enter.  The requesting agency will provide escort service when required.

Authorized personnel must also coordinate their request with the agency having control of the desired area and or aircraft.  Personnel authorized to take photos and or video must also notify base operations at 366-4188 and the Andersen Emergency Control Center (ECC) at 366-2911 before beginning any photography operation. A copy of the approved FPAL must be carried while on the flight line and available upon demand by security forces personnel.

All imagery intended for public release must be cleared through 36 Wing Public Affairs (671) 366-2228 prior to release. Imagery can be emailed to the Public Affairs office at 36wg.pa2@us.af.mil or brought to the Public Affairs office Bldg. 21001. Public Affairs is required to conduct a security and policy review of all imagery intended for public release. Please allow 1-10 business days as the Public Affairs office may need to consult other base agencies. Imagery used for internal official purposes and that will not be released outside of the DoD does not require Public Affairs review.  

For group tours, the PA office has consumer-grade still and video equipment available for self-help use on a first-come, first-served basis. This is to assist with getting imagery cleared for release faster. Self-help photo and video equipment is for official use only and can be signed out from the PA office 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Monday - Friday. All images entering the public domain must be reviewed and cleared for release by the Public Affairs office.

Restricted Photography

Posting unauthorized photos, videos, or descriptions of missions, resources, or facilities on the Internet in any forum can aid an adversary or discredit the Air Force.  Therefore, possession, distribution, transfer, or posting, whether electronically or physically, of visual images resulting from any unauthorized photography or videos is prohibited. All imagery must be cleared through 36 Wing Public Affairs (671) 366-2228 prior to public release

 

Photography of open panels on aircraft, inside of cockpit, restricted area control points or security measures is prohibited, unless required for official purposes.

Taking suggestive or obscene photographs is prohibited.

Using flash photography in the direction of moving aircraft is prohibited.

Photographing aircraft without approval from the unit having control of the asset is prohibited.

• Taking photographs of munitions being loaded on aircraft is prohibited.

In the event of an emergency or aircraft accident film or camera memory cards may be confiscated to check for inadvertent classified exposures. The public release of images of damaged aircraft or injured personnel is prohibited. 

 

Security and Policy Review

What must be submitted:

The 36th Wing Public Affairs office only has the security and policy review authority to clear unclassified information of local or regional interest.  This includes photography taken on the flight line or controlled areas, speeches, presentations, papers, multimedia and visual information material, and information proposed for release to a publicly accessible web site with the exception of Air Force publications. Products requested for release may require review from other base agencies. Our goal is to ensure maximum disclosure, minimum delay.

Products not able to be cleared by the 36th Wing Public Affairs office and or that require higher headquarters review will be submitted to the Air Force Installation and Mission Support Center for review. IAW AFI 35-102, SECURITY AND POLICY REVIEW PROCESS

Allow at least 10 workdays for Air Force-level review and clearance and at least 20 workdays for DOD and other Federal agency review and clearance.

Originators  must ensure disclaimers accompany all  documents that are not submitted in an  "official Air Force capacity."  

An appropriate disclaimer is: "The views expressed in this article are those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the official policy or position of the Air Force, the Department of Defense, or the U.S. Government."

Who must submit: 

All Air Force military and civilian personnel, including Air National Guard and Air Force Reserve personnel on active duty, who release material related to their active-duty assignment, retired military members, and former Air Force civilian employees will use this review service to ensure DOD-related information released to the public is consistent with their requirement to safeguard classified material.

Contractors must submit material proposed for public release for review according to valid contract requirements as specified in Defense Department (DD) Form 254, Department of Defense Contract Security Classification Specification, DOD 5220.22-R, Industrial Security Regulation, and DOD 5220.22-M, National Industrial Security Program Operating Manual

Social media is a quick and easy way to stay in touch with friends and keep up to date with whats going on. Unfortunately posting the wrong thing to social media can be a quick and easy way to find yourself in hot water. Make sure that what you're posting is allowed and that you aren't violating any regulations or OPSEC standards. For more information on social media use visit our website at: http://www.andersen.af.mil/Units/Wing-Staff-Agencies/Public-Affairs/
In an effort to keep the base population informed of emergency situations occuring on or around the installation, there is the new AtHoc App available for download.
