Public Affairs Mission
The purpose of Air Force PA operations is to communicate timely, accurate, and useful information about Air Force activities to DOD, Air Force, and domestic and international audiences. Public Affairs leverages communication capabilities through an integrated approach to advance the Commander’s mission priorities.

Air Force leaders rely on Public Affairs professionals to assist them with delivering their communication efforts to Airmen and their families, to include retirees, civilians and contract employees.

The public affairs office at Little Rock AFB manages several products to accomplish this mission:
-- Little Rock AFB public website
-- Little Rock AFB Facebook
-- Little Rock AFB YouTube
-- Little Rock AFB Flickr
-- Little Rock AFB Instagram
-- Weekly newspaper, the Combat Airlifter

Our products highlight our Airmen and our mission. If you have or know someone who has a story to share, contact our journalism team at (501) 987-6744. We want to hear about it!
