Serving the U.S. Military

It is part of the Defense Media Activity. Unique among the many Department of Defense authorized news outlets, only Stars and Stripes is guaranteed First Amendment privileges that are subject to Congressional oversight.

Stars and Stripes has published a newspaper continuously since World War II. Our unique military coverage first became available online in 1999. Today, Stars and Stripes operates as a multimedia news organization. In addition to, we publish a main newspaper edition Monday through Thursday overseas, plus a special Weekend Edition for Europe and Pacific on Friday, and a separate Mideast edition Friday through Sunday for troops serving downrange.

On any given day, Stars and Stripes reaches some 900,000 people globally.

Stars and Stripes maintains news bureaus in Europe, Pacific and the Middle East to provide first-hand reporting on events in those theaters. In addition to news and sports, the Stars and Stripes print newspaper contains all the elements of an American “hometown paper,” from advice and opinion columns to comics, horoscopes, and crossword puzzles.

The Mideast edition is command-sponsored and distributed at no charge to forces stationed in war zones. Elsewhere overseas the newspaper is sold on U.S. bases in coin boxes and at military exchanges. Home delivery to subscribers is available in Belgium, England, Germany, Italy, Japan and Korea.
