Public Affairs Tips

  • Public Affairs people need detailed information on our events. Keep in mind that most of the PAOs and the readers don’t have a clue of what goes on at our competitions or what useful marksmanship training entails. Be very specific.
  • Let quotes tell the story. It keeps the reader interested.
  • Digital pictures need to be high resolution. Cell phone pictures work fine, please use the highest resolution/image size setting that you can.
  • Identify people by rank, first name, last name, and their assigned Major Command.
  • Remember to answer the who, what, when, where, and how.
  • Quotes, quotes, quotes. Cannot stress this enough. Make these articles about the Soldiers. Let them tell the story.
