The process for submitting a Joint Hometown News Release has been improved. Traditionally, these forms were filled out by hand by the service member, and then mailed or emailed to our staff. Now, all releases can be submitted by each service member and processed by a unit's public affairs officer using our online system. We no longer accept paper forms.
We are here to tell your story! Whether a promotion, re-enlistment, retirement or any other achievement in your military career, we will share your story with your hometown. Make sure you attach a photo with your release, as most media outlets want to run a photo with your story. To fill out a Joint Hometown News Release, please click the link below.
