The public affairs mission is to tell the Robins 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 Robins issues, programs and base events to the people in this community and members of the news media. As the installation public affairs office, we provide information and services for the base including the Warner Robins Air Logistics Center, 5th Combat Communications Group and all other associate units that do not have a separate public affairs office.
