McChord Field Public Affairs

62nd Airlift Wing ShieldWelcome to the 62nd Airlift Wing Public Affairs website. Our purpose is to provide trusted counsel to base leadership, build and maintain Airman morale and readiness, and help strengthen public trust and support.

Please take a moment to look through our site to find information about the 62nd Airlift Wing, releases about upcoming events, and much, much more!

The Air Force conducts thorough, active Public Affairs programs at all command levels to provide service members, the public, Congress, and media representatives timely, accurate and reliable Department of Defense and Air Force information.

Public Affairs activities fall into three sections: Media Relations, Community Relations and Command Information.

Media Relations links McChord Airmen and their leaders to the local and global audience about our global airlift mission.

Community Relations works to increase public awareness and understanding of the armed forces and the missions, policies and programs of the Air Force.

Command Information is the primary means Air Force leaders use to communicate news and information to Airmen and their families.

For more information about the 62nd Airlift Wing Public Affairs program, read the 62 AW/PA Employment Plan.
