The DLA Public Affairs Office provides world-class communications support to all aspects of the Defense Logistics Agency. The office helps communicate how the Defense Department’s only combat logistics support agency provides resources to our nation’s men and women serving in the Army, Navy Air Force and Marines, at home and abroad. Public Affairs keeps the public and other government departments and agencies like Interior, Coast Guard, the Army Corps of Engineers, Forestry and Homeland Security up to date on services DLA offers and provides to them. DLA strives to keep its employees and the general public informed on the most current information regarding logistic support worldwide.

The office expresses the value DLA adds to the Department of Defense, combatant commands, the military services and warfighters, and to the American people, using internal and external communication avenues. Read more on DLA's news page and DLA's Facebook page. The office supports the DLA mission through developing and administering proactive command information, as well as developing media relations and public outreach policies that communicate DLA’s critical role as a combat support agency.

DLA Public Affairs supports the DoD goal to provide timely and accurate information so that the public, congress and news media can understand the facts about national security and defense strategy. It also responds to requests for information from organizations and private citizens, as well as serves as the DLA director’s principal spokesperson.

Within DLA, the office serves as a senior public affairs adviser and a member of the personal staff to provide counsel to the organization’s leaders. Supporting the DLA director’s intent through communication integration and alignment is an area of expertise for the office.
