Navy ombudsmen are key resources for family members, particularly during deployments. They serve as a liaison between the command team and families within the command. Ombudsmen:
- Provide information and referral to assist families with concerns or issues.
- Regularly communicate and distribute information to and from the command and the unit’s family members.
- Keep the command informed regarding the overall health, morale and welfare of the families in the command.
