1. For those looking for
information about Coast Guard Support programs and services to Coast Guard
members and their families, an app is now available.
I am pleased to announce the launch of the Coast Guard HSWL mobile app,
available today on the iOS mobile platform and later this month for the Android
2. The Coast Guard
HSWL mobile app contains information about the many quality of life resources
available to Coast Guard personnel and their families (e.g., CG SUPRT, medical,
housing, morale, well-being and recreation, family programs, Chaplain services,
fitness, the Coast Guard Exchange (CGX) System, etc.).
The app provides the ability for users to directly contact program
services from their mobile device. For example, the app enables the user to access CG SUPRT services, the CGX
System, and local unit ombudsmen.
3. There is also a
wealth of information available to all users of the mobile app about the Coast
Guard including its history, missions, components, and organizations.
In addition, the application includes Coast Guard videos through YouTube,
and Coast Guard news feeds through Twitter, Facebook, and Blogs.
To improve your experience, Wi-Fi connectivity is recommended because
some features may load slowly without it.
4. To download the
Coast Guard HSWL mobile app, visit the App Store for your iOS device and Google
Play for your Android device. Search
for USCG HSWL to locate this app. Additional features, instructions for usage, and download directions are
available at www.uscg.mil/ombudsman.
