JUNIPER Ombudsman


Amanda McCaskill, Ombudsman

An ombudsman is a person, usually a spouse of a service member, who voluntarily serves as the liaison between the unit and the families of members assigned to the unit.  In the case of JUNIPER, Mrs. Amanda McCaskill serves as the unit ombudsman, and is always available to help crew members and their families, especially when JUNIPER is underway.  She has received standardized training to help out spouses and families with common issues that may affect dependents of Coast Guard men and women.

Mrs. McCaskill is the wife of JUNIPER's Command Chief, MKC Michael McCaskill. To contact JUNIPER's ombudsman please call CGC JUNIPER at (401) 841-6953.

Volunteer as JUNIPER's Ombudsman

Although JUNIPER only needs one ombudsman, Mrs. McCaskill will need a replacement when her family relocates with MKC McCaskill during the summer of 2014.  If a crew member's spouse is interested in becoming JUNIPER's ombudsman please read the information below, and follow up with an email to the Webmaster (LTJG Emily Young), or contact the ship directly. We greatly appreciate your assistance.
