Public Affairs Mission

Mission

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:

Requesting Photo/Video Support

Submit official PA photo/video support requests to the 36 WG/PA email account at 36wg.pa2@us.af.mil at least 10 duty days in advance; requests for  support should be submitted with a completed Air Force Form 833. Advance notice provides PA the ability to ensure the necessary equipment and personnel are available. Failure to coordinate in advance will reduce the likelihood that the event can receive PA support.  

Receiving Imagery 

Hi-resolution digital imagery will be made available within one to five duty days for download from the Andersen Air Force Base Flickr page. Newsworthy or those events with high public interest will be posted to Andersen Air Force Base, Guam Facebook page or the Andersen Air Force Base website. Imagery will also be accessioned for historical archiving and is available on the Defense Video Imagery Distribution System (DVIDS) website.

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.

 

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.
