Public Affairs can make a big impact on recruiting in all of the Service branches. Here, Chief Petty Officer Paul DeLaughter of Navy Recruiting District New England talks about his mission educating people about the Navy. Public Affairs officers and Mass Communication Specialists work with the media to distribute interesting stories about work the Navy has done within the local community, international humanitarian missions and more.
