What is the Ombudsman Program? The Ombudsman Program is a command-operated program, intended to improve communication between the command and a Coast Guardsman’s family members. Coast Guard Ombudsmen are communication links, information and referral resources, and advocates for command family members.
What are the functions of an Ombudsman?
An Ombudsman communicates regularly with command families, provides information and outreach to command families, provides appropriate referral resources and acts as an advocate for command families.
Who is Eligible for this
The program is available to any Active Duty, Reservists, and their dependents. More importantly the program is tailored for those at the Air Station. Your support for the program is voluntary but recommended. Your knowledge of the area in regards to entertainment, medical or day care will help others.

Plan on your Active Duty member not being able to evacuate with you as there is a high probability they will be standing duty or assigned to fly Air Station aircraft to a safe location. The Air Station will release all non-essential Active Duty members as soon as practical so they can evacuate with their families. Please have a plan in place, Locate the “Safe Haven” you will go to and have your evacuation kit in place now. Please Note, in order to receive travel reimbursement the Coast Guard has to issue a mandatory evacuation order for our Coast Guard District. With that said do not make your decision to evacuate based on getting reimbursed. Your family’s safety is more important than the money you will get for reimbursement. If you have any questions feel free to contact us.
Military Discount Resource List
Many of us don't realize how abundant military discounts are in the community and therefore aren't able to take advantage of them. Listed here are a few of the discounts provided within the community. It is by no means inclusive, so a good rule of thumb is to ALWAYS ask. If you find a store that isn't on our list let us know so we can add it. Plus check back on a regular basis because we will be updating all the time as we learn of more discounts.
