The 50th Space Wing Public Affairs' mission is to engineer change through sharing leadership's key messages with Airmen and family members, the local community and the news media.
· News - Shares key messages with Airmen and family members both on and off base through Schriever's base newspaper, the Satellite Flyer and through Schriever's public Website.
· Media Relations - Disseminates key messages about Schriever's mission and accomplishments to the news media.
· Community Relations - Informs members of the local community and visitors of the wing's mission through base tours and speaking engagements.
The 50th Space Wing Public Affairs office conducts tours for military groups whose visit fills a mission requirement and civic leader groups that want to learn more about what space-based capabilities the 50th SW delivers to warfighters.
The Public Affairs office will not conduct tours for individuals or families or for groups of more than 40 people. ROTC detachments and other student groups will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
To be approved, tour request forms must include an attachment listing the full names of the visitors attending.
