We would like to introduce ourselves as your Ombudsman. As many of you probably know Ombudsman are the link between the command and the Navy family. This is especially true in deploying commands, where the Ombudsman is the primary point of contact between the families at home and the command during deployment. Ombudsmen are also an important resource during natural disasters or evacuations. As a spouse it is important to become acquainted with your Ombudsman. The Ombudsman is not a counselor or a social worker, but can assist Navy family members in finding solutions by helping them get the necessary assistance. As the USS GERMANTOWN Ombudsmen we are committed to providing our family members with information and assistance.
  • As your Command Family Ombudsman, we fulfill the following roles: 

    - Serve as the primary link/liaison between Germantown families and the command.
    - Serve as the primary communicator of information between the command and command families.
    - Communicate regularly with families via e-mail, the Germantown Web page and newsletters.
    - Provide information and outreach to command family members.
    - Interact and cooperate with organizations and military offices.
    - Assist with the Germantown command sponsorship program to help aid in a smooth transition of new families arriving onboard.
    - Act as an advocate for family members, utilizing knowledge of the command to help access the appropriate resource within the chain of command.
