Public Affairs

Public Affairs advances the Department of the Air Force priorities and achieves mission objectives through integrated planning, execution and assessment of communication capabilities, aligned with PA core competencies—Trusted Counsel to Leaders; Service Member Morale and Readiness; Public Trust and Support; Global Influence and Deterrence.

The Peterson & Schriever SFB Public Affairs Office provides advice and counsel, communication planning and support to seven Delta-level commands—Space Base Delta 1, Space Delta 2, Space Delta 3, Space Delta 6, Space Delta 7, Space Delta 8, Space Delta 9 and PNT Delta (Provisional).

AFI 1-1, 2.15. Use of Social Media. You are personally responsible for what you say and post on social networking services and any other medium. Regardless of the method of communication used, Air Force standards must be observed at all times, both on and off-duty.


AFI 1-1, 2.15.5. When you are expressing personal opinions on social media sites and can be identified as an Airman, you should make clear that you are speaking for yourself and not on behalf of the Air Force. While service members may generally use their rank and service even when acting in their personal capacity, they should not do so in situations where the context may imply official sanction or endorsement of their personal opinions.


Avoid perception of DoD sponsorship, approval, or endorsement of any political candidate, campaign, or cause—especially on social media.

To request PA event coverage, please submit a request here at least 10 duty days prior to the event.

Advanced 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. Contact our office at ​(719) 556-5185 for additional guidance.

To receive our newsletter, please work with your unit's designated CSL or commander's support staff to get added to your unit's email distro.
