Supporting community events, facilitating visits to NTC and Fort Irwin

Professional motocross rider Ronnie Renner and his sons are shown during a visit to the National Training Center and Fort Irwin, Sept. 9. Renner performed a free motocross demonstration for the installation at the Fort Irwin Town Center in May.

The National Training Center and Fort Irwin Community Relations programs is actively involved with fostering and strengthening relationships with local communities outside the installation. The COMREL program is a fundamental and functional area of the Public Affairs Office.

Public Affairs fulfills the Army’s obligation to keep the American people and the Army informed and helps to establish the conditions that lead to confidence in America’s Army. Every member of the Army contributes to effective PA. Soldiers are the most credible and influential spokespersons that the Army has.

Community relations develop an effective two-way channel of communication between the Army and the community. Army support to and participation in public events is based on the fact that the Army belongs to the American people. Common ownership requires that Army resources be used to support events and activities of common interest and benefit.

Community relations projects or programs may be supported by use of exhibits, equipment and facilities. Also included are exhibits displayed on military installations during open house programs.
