Middle East Advertising
Stars and Stripes publishes a main edition Monday through Thursday and a special Middle East edition Friday through Sunday, and distributes it to U.S. forces and civilian workers in Afghanistan, Djibouti, Bahrain, Kuwait, Kyrgyzstan, and Qatar. The importance of providing an American-style newspaper can best be summarized by our readers:
“We appreciate you being there and sharing the stories and times of our service members. I am sure many other families… also appreciate your articles and excellent writing.”
“The goal of my letter is… to inform you about the huge impact your publication has, not only on the American troops, but also on the many… workers that support our mission. They read assiduously and have a long memory.”
We maintain a link to America for our downrange military that is critical to morale—and they read us with great attention. Stars and Stripes has no competition when it comes to reaching servicemembers and civilian contractors downrange. The vast majority of our deployed readers come home with money to spend and a desire to make up for the time they lost and the privations they endured.
Stars and Stripes offers unique opportunities for custom advertising programs, including sponsorships, contests and events that will let our military men and women know they are valued and appreciated.
Daily distribution currently averages between 40,000 and 42,000 copies, with pass-along readership estimated at 4 to 7 readers per copy.
