Defense Media Activity (DMA) is the Department of Defense's direct line of communication for news and information to U.S. forces worldwide. The agency presents news, information and entertainment on a variety of media platforms, including radio, television, internet, print media and emerging media technologies. DMA informs millions of active, Guard and Reserve service members, civilian employees, contractors, military retirees and their families in the U.S. and abroad.


DMA is designed to modernize and streamline media operations by consolidating military service and DoD media components into a single, joint, integrated multimedia communications organization. DMA was established in October 2008 as a result of the Defense Base Realignment and Closure Act. The agency consolidates the Soldiers Media Center, Naval Media Center, Marine Corps News, Air Force News Service and American Forces Information Service into a single field activity. DMA also includes Stars and Stripes newspaper and the Defense Information School. In October 2011, DMA celebrated the grand opening of its state-of-the-art headquarters and production facility at Ft. Meade, Maryland.
