Public Affairs

Mission

The Public Affairs Office develops Strategic Communications and Public Affairs strategies for First Army. Our office communicates First Army activities, capabilities, goals and priorities to the American public and to Soldiers and families through our Public Information and Command Information programs. We develop and execute a robust volunteer Community Relations program that helps local schools and other agencies. Finally, First Army Public Affairs provides public affairs planning, support and training to mobilized Reserve Component Public Affairs units as required.
