Abstract : This paper questions whether Air Force doctrine can be supported more effectively by considering external and internal factors such as society, the media, the nature of government and Air Force public affairs, legal constraints, public relations theory, the message, and manpower/training. The author criticizes the Air Force for not using public relations theory enough in its programs. The conclusion is that some internal factors in the Force can be given more emphasis to fine tune the ability to support Air Force doctrine more effectively.
