Survey: Where Airmen Get Information

Please take a moment to answer a few questions about the sources you find most useful when obtaining official information. The purpose of this survey is to provide the 50th Space Wing commander insight into where and how Schriever Airmen get official information. The commander will use these results to leverage current communication tools, and possibly incorporate new ones, to best serve and communicate with the base population.

The survey is anonymous and completely voluntary; however, maximum participation is encouraged to engage the best possible communication tools for our audiences.
