Command Information Officer
Public Affairs Office, Georgia Department of Defense
There are more than 500 state employees who work for the Georgia Department of Defense (Ga. DoD) in capacities ranging from sanitation services, to human resources, to public affairs. Often, that there is even such a thing as a state DoD gets forgotten or overlooked because the National Guard is the driving force within the organization. The Ga. DoD is comprised of three primary components: the Georgia Air National Guard, Georgia Army National Guard, and the all-volunteer Georgia State Defense Force. With such visible and important flag-bearers, it’s easy to see how the hundreds of state employees who serve them are often overlooked.
