Congratulations on your orders to join the COMHELMARSTRIKEWINGLANT Staff, which exercises administrative and operational control over 11 subordinate commands within Naval Station Mayport, Florida and Naval Air Station Jacksonville, Florida. These commands play a major role in the accomplishment of the Navy’s Maritime Dominance Mission. The COMHELMARSTRIKEWINGLANT staff is focused on preparing combat-ready HSM squadrons and detachments for Fleet and Combatant Commanders.
All personnel, married or single, who receive orders to COMHELMARSTRIKEWINGLANT should have an assigned sponsor to assist them. Your sponsor will offer all necessary assistance to make your move as smooth as possible. However, it is your duty to communicate with your sponsor to let him or her know your needs and arrival date. If you have not received notification of the name and address of your sponsor, contact the CHSMWL Command Master Chief.
