The United State’s Department of Defense buys many different products and services. They announced yesterday that they will award Syracuse University’s Newhouse School of Public Communications a contract to continue to train military journalists. The contract has a value of over $4 million and will consist of a base year and four option years. The school has been providing this service since 1963 with annually renewed contracts.

The military in the modern era has always had journalists who produced news for the Defense Department and service members. It has obviously expanded in recent years to include broadcast television and radio, the internet and other media. The Newhouse school has played a major role in developing this capability and this contract continues that contribution.
