Communication Strategy & Operations

The mission of the Marine Corps Air Station New River Communication Strategy & Operations office (COMMSTRAT) is to provide robust public affairs and visual information support to the air station and its tenant commands. Effective Oct. 1, 2017, Marine Corps Installations East-Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune and MCAS New River Public Affairs and Combat Camera merged to establish the Communication Strategy and Operations office, or COMMSTRAT. 

COMMSTRAT is committed to providing internal information, external information and community relations to the Marines, sailors, and the surrounding community. It is our job to keep the community in touch with what’s happening on the air station and what the Marine Corps is accomplishing worldwide.
