DLA Public Affairs

The DLA Public Affairs Office provides 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, Marines and Space Force, 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.

See the Defense Information School's list of policy and doctrine documents for the documents that guide the overall Defense Department Public Affairs mission, as well as the department's Principles of Information for background on information made available to the public.
