FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Now Available on Fort Bliss:

Stars and Stripes

newspaper - U.S. edition

WASHINGTON, D.C., June 18, 2013 – The award-winning journalism of

Stars and Stripes

, the

U.S. military’s only independent news media, is now available on Fort Bliss, Texas.

Relied on for decades as the premier newspaper for service members and their families sta-

tioned overseas,

Stars and Stripes

now brings its unique content stateside with a special U.S.

edition. Beginning in June, feature articles and in-depth stories reported by

Stars and Stripes

journalists from U.S. military installations all over the world will appear for the first time at

Fort Bliss.

Stars and Stripes’

award-winning journalists provide unique reports from military bases

around the world on topics of vital interest to the military community. They cover Europe,

Pacific, the Pentagon, Capitol Hill – some are even embedded with downrange forces – and

provide a “boots on the ground” perspective.

The

Stars and Stripes

U.S. edition gathers the best of each week’s reporting into a single publica-

tion.

In addition to providing coverage of military operations and issues,

Stars and Stripes

is the only

news media that operates from inside the Department of Defense, but with total editorial inde-

pendence. The

Stars and Stripes

U.S. edition will provide our military community, from active

duty to veterans and their families, with information they won’t get anywhere else.

We are proud to partner with the Laven Publishing Group, publishers of the Ft. Bliss

Monitor

newspaper, who now brings 9,000 copies of the

Stars and Stripes

to Fort Bliss the first Tuesday

each month.

“We are very excited to bring this well-known publication to Fort Bliss,” said Susan Laven, vice

president of the Laven Publishing Group. “It will complement

The Monitor

with national and

international articles of interest to active-duty military, families, Reservists, National Guard,

veterans and retirees. Anyone who has been stationed overseas knows and has relied on the

Stars and Stripes

to keep them informed.”

Stars and Stripes

delivers independent news and information to the U.S. military community worldwide. Editorially independent

of interference from outside its editorial chain of command, it provides commercially available U.S. and world news and objective,

staff-produced stories relevant to the military community in a balanced, fair and accurate manner.
