Do you have creative skills? Our Public Affairs team is looking for help! Photographers, videographers, new media specialists, graphic designers, writers, marketing professionals, web designers, journalists, we need all of you! Each area command has a Public Affairs Officer (PAO) and many detachments have a Unit Public Affairs Representative (UPAR).

Our Public Affairs Team often fully integrates with the rest of the New York State Military forces. The opportunities for military service via our PAO team are outstanding. Be in the center of it all! Capture our story and help us keep and retain the most talented soldiers possible. If you're looking for a creative outlet, like to tell stories, and desire to serve in the military, we will be an outstanding fit for you.


During our September 2021 Change of Command Ceremony, many of our Public Affairs team were on hand to cover the event.

The Public Affairs team stands with out going commanding general David Warager.
