Since 1986, Ombudsmen have served as a vital link between Coast Guard families donating their time and energy to provide support, which enables execution of our many challenging missions. In addition, Ombudsmen serve as a liaison between the commanding officer or the officer-in-charge and families to provide insight on the state of the unit, and to enable proactive response to minimize or preclude the impact family concerns may have on mission readiness. Ombudsmen help to reduce social isolation among family members by providing direct communication to families and facilitating and promoting a healthy sense of community among Coast Guard members and their families.
