Public Affairs

The mission of the 375th AMW Public Affairs office is to provide trusted counsel to leaders; build, maintain, and strengthen Airmen morale and readiness; enhance public trust and support; achieve global influence and deterrence; and provide photo, video, and graphics multimedia support to the Air Force mission.

Air Force leaders rely on Public Affairs professionals to assist them with delivering their communication efforts with Airmen and their families, to include retirees, civilians and contract employees.

Public Affairs manages several communication tools:
- Weekly Internal Scott-All Bulletin email
- Weekly newspaper, the Command Post.
- Scott AFB Public Website
- Scott AFB Facebook
- Scott AFB Twitter
- Scott Flickr

In addition, PA is responsible for the base marquee signage, and, in emergencies, a Straight Talk line.

The 375th AMW Public Affairs Office is the largest PA shop in Air Mobility Command, and is designed as a production facility, more than 60,000 products are delivered to Team Scott each year. A little more than 70% of the products support the base's 31 tenant units. The shop consists of broadcast journalists, photojournalists and graphic artists who perform the mission of telling the Air Force story.

In addition, our community relations programs enable commanders to enhance Airmen morale and readiness, and increase public trust and support. These programs include base tours, orientation flights, open houses and air shows, civic leader tours, the Speakers Bureau program, and a host of specialized programs between the base and community leaders.

Media relations is the link between the 375th AMW and the local community, and serves to inform global audiences about air and space capabilities. Members of the media who request information or coverage should call our main number at 618-256-4241 or email requests to

Requests for Volunteers

Many service members actively volunteer on their off-duty time in a variety of charitable organizations, schools, and churches in their communities. Their participation, however, is strictly a personal choice and is not regulated by the Department of Defense.

Scott Air Force Base does not have a central location or bulletin board for posting flyers and/or informational materials that are designed to recruit volunteers. Requests to place announcements in the official base newspaper will not be granted. Requestors, may, however, purchase ad space through the local publisher of the base newspaper. Call the publisher at 618-239-2491.

Band Requests

You never know who you'll meet or what you'll see walking around Scott AFB! Kirk Poore is a contractor with U.S. Transportation Command (USTRANSCOM) who often spends his lunch hour outside the headquarters practicing the violin. He started playing only four years ago at the age of 54. He said he plays outside because he's not very good and doesn't want to disturb anyone. "Out here, the only one I disturb is the guy mowing the lawn, and he just goes around me."
Tech. Sgt. promotion list will be posted July 19 at 8 a.m. Best of luck to all those who tested! 🤞
#ICYMI Just a reminder to plan ahead for potential delays due to the scheduled road closure! 🚧🚗🚛🚙
