The office has a 24-hour on-call PA representative who can be reached by calling 843-437-4238. Media Relations facilitates engagement and two-way communication with the service members and the media, which is often one of the most rapid and credible means of delivering the commander’s message. Remaining open, honest, and accessible to the maximum extent possible normally results in greater accuracy, context, and timeliness in communicating with internal and external audiences. Personnel assigned to the 315th AW, whether permanent or deployed, will coordinate all official media requests and queries through the 3i5AW/PA office.
Maj. Wayne Capps, Public Affairs Officer

The 315th Airlift Wing's main community relations programs include:
* Mini C-17
* Speaking Engagements
* Tuskegee Airmen Career Day
* Women in Aviation Career Day
* Honorary Commander Program
Please contact the Community Relations section for information at 843-963-2036. It is our policy to support as many requests as possible as mission and budget conditions permit, but we are not always able to accommodate every request received.
For more information on the Community Relations program, check out AFI 35-105, Community Relations.
Our goal is to foster positive relations with the surrounding communities. Participation in community events by Air Force personnel is desirable and highly encouraged; however, limitations of time, money and mission requirements may make it impossible to grant all requests.
