What is an Ombudsman?
Ombudsmen are volunteers appointed by a commanding officer (CO) to serve as an information link between command leadership and command families. Ombudsmen are trained to disseminate information — official Department of the Navy (DoN) and command information, command-climate issues and local community opportunities. Ombudsmen are advocates for the command and command families and are trained to provide information and make referrals. Ombudsmen maintain an up-to-date list of resources to refer family members to the appropriate agency.
