Provide effective and efficient worldwide support to Warfighters and our other customers.

To best support the DLA mission, DLA Land and Maritime Public Affairs provides guidance to the commander, senior leadership, directorates, staffs and detachments, as well as all tenants of Defense Supply Center Columbus.The office develops and administers proactive command information, media relations and public outreach policies and programs that communicate DLA’s critical role as a combat support agency, value added to DOD, COCOMs, the military services and warfighters, and the American people using internal and external communication avenues.


Warfighter-focused, globally responsive, fiscally responsible supply chain leadership.

Media Relations

Our Media Relations develops well thought out and responsive media operations.  The team adjusts quickly to both the scale of news media coverage and the organization's ability to communicate effectively and within the parameters provided.  The team works in concert with the News and Internal Information team to gain synergy of effort and information across all DLA audiences.

Goals and initiatives of the media relations team are to:

  • Increase positive media coverage of DLA, its mission, people, capabilities and services.
  • Increase dissemination of DLA’s compelling story as America's logistics combat support agency. Targeted, strategic engagement of the media provides DLA the opportunity to educate the American public about how the agency uses taxpayer resources as well as informing warfighters about DLA support. 

News and Web Operations

The News and Web Operations provides DLA related news and information to internal and external – non media- audiences. To build and maintain credibility, the team ensures all products are timely, accurate and consistent across audiences. In addition to operating DLA Land and Maritime's digital presence, the team contributes to several DLA agency initiatives.
