Communication Strategy and Operations


What Communication Strategy and Operations Does For You

The primary mission of the 26th Marine Expeditionary Unit Communication Strategy and Operations, formerly known as the Public Affairs Office and Combat Camera, is to tell the stories of the MEU’s Marines and Sailors to audiences across the nation and world. Civilian and military newspapers, magazines, radio, TV stations and Internet sites are just some of the many mass communications mediums through which we communicate.

We, at the Communication Strategy and Operations, get the MEU’s story out by providing critical access and escort to civilian media. Whether facilitating interviews, scheduling and executing photo shoots, issuing press releases or responding to media queries, we strive to provide the most complete, accurate and timely availability of information about our activities consistent with operational security and the privacy of our service members.

Community Relations

The mission of Community Relations is to foster a positive and proactive military and civilian relationship between the 26th MEU and the world around us. Our Community Relations program strives to boost the public's awareness of the unique elements and contributions of the Marine Corps through direct interaction with Marines, sailors and their families. At the heart of our community relations program are the individual Marines who continue to make an impact in our neighboring communities. Positive contributions take place daily, through many different outlets such as, individual volunteerism, unit participation in worthwhile programs such as non-profit groups like Habitat for Humanity, speakers, flyovers for local events.
