We offer media outreach services designed to tell the Navy story through the eyes of individual Sailors by leveraging local ties, such as hometown, high school, college, family members, etc.
Local Media Advisories
Preserving a popular capability from the Fleet Hometown News Program, NAVCO notifies local media when Sailors are promoted, receive an award, earn a warfare qualification, complete a deployment or achieve other recognition.
Awards, stories, and photos can be e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or Sailors may submit material using the form below. Sailors can also use this form to request assistance in coordinating a phone or email interview with local media.
- NAVCO provides media feedback report with links to all coverage.
Media Production Visits
NAVCO sends a small production team to commands to write feature stories with photos. These stories are sent to each Sailor’s hometown and posted on our blog http://navyoutreach.blogspot.com
After the visit, NAVCO provides each participating command with media feedback reports and links to all coverage.
NAVCO can also provide training with command public affairs teams on how to produce their own feature stories for hometown media distribution.
If you would like to be considered for future media production visits, e-mail email@example.com.
Fleet Produced Content
Photos and stories found on DVIDS, Flickr, navy.mil, and those e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org, are shared with local media.
NAVCO can only use stories and photos that have a local connection, such as hometown, high school, college, family members, etc.
