Advertisers are offered display, insert and classified advertising at open and contract rates, as well as opportunities for reaching the military audience online via Stripes.com and through its mobile apps.

Stars and Stripes also produces a U.S. Edition, currently distributed at the Pentagon and several bases in the Washington D.C. Metro region, as a supplement to The Free Lance-Star (Fredericksburg, Va.),  throughout Hawaii (at military bases on Oahu and the Hale Koa Hotel), on Columbus AFB in Mississippi, Fort Bliss in Texas, Fort Lewis-McChord in the Pacific northwest, Travis AFB in California, MacDill AFB (CENTCOM HQ) in Florida, and JB Charleston in South Carolina.

In addition, Stars and Stripes produces weekly and monthly publications, special supplements, branded promotions, online advertising and sponsorships, and more!

The value of the U.S. military market is extremely high, centering as it does around a well-educated, highly trained and fully employed core group of active-duty servicemembers. A look at our demographics speaks volumes—as does the fact that we are the only newspaper circulated to the numerous government contractors and military forces currently deployed in Afghanistan and the Gulf region.

We encourage all of our advertisers to sponsor promotions and events for our servicemembers that demonstrate that they are valued and remembered by the folks back home. The residual value to their brands as being there for our forces when they needed it most is powerful and long lasting.
