Tinker Public Affairs

The U.S. Air Force engages in Public Affairs to provide trusted counsel to leaders; build, maintain, and strengthen Airman morale and readiness; enhance public trust and support; and achieve global influence and deterrence.

The public affairs mission is to tell the Tinker Air Force Base story to the American public. We also strive to enhance airman morale by keeping airmen and their families informed about Air Force issues. Our office is responsible for providing accurate, timely information on Tinker issues, programs and base events to the people in this community and members of the news media.
