Media Relations

News Media

PAO is the first point of contact for civilian news media. We respond promptly to requests for information and can coordinate interviews and visits to the installation. The media relations branch also manages submissions to the Hometown News Service and conducts PA training for supported organizations on Fort Lee.

News Media

Fort Lee is a non-public news gathering forum. As such, all civilian media must coordinate approval and an escort prior to entering Fort Lee.

News organizations interested in covering the mission and events at Fort Lee or filming on the installation should contact the media relations officer to arrange an escort on post.

Members of the media may also request to be included on e-mail distribution lists for media releases and advisories to stay informed of the latest news and opportunities for coverage at Fort Lee.
