What is an OMBUDSMAN?
Navy family Ombudsman are valuable assets in facilitating communication between the Commanding Officer and family members, fostering a better understanding of the needs and viewpoints of the crew and their families. As the command Ombudsman, I provide information and assistance to all Navy family members onboard HSC-2.
Wondering what a Navy Ombudsmand is?
The Ombudsman is a spouse who is appointed to the CO and the CMC to serve as a link between command leadership and our Navy families and attend to family issues, before they require extensive command attention. The purpose of the volunteer service is to utilize someone who has had experience with the stresses and challenges of the military lifestyle to provide families alike a safety net to reduce the stresses and tensions that arise between work and family. The ombudsman code of ethics are to: (a) support the command mission, (b) work within the chain of command as directed, (c) maintain confidentiality, and (d) maintain the highest standards of professionalism.
