WASHINGTON (NNS) -- "Navy Ombudsmen,
Theresa and I would like to take some time to say 'thank you' for your support and dedication that you provide to our Sailors, families and our great Navy.
For the past 43 years, Ombudsmen have been an irreplaceable resource for our Sailors, while serving as an information link between command leadership and command families.
As an Ombudsman, you work collaboratively with the command to maintain and sustain the morale and welfare of the command's service members, their families and single Sailors on active duty.
As we all know, family readiness is tied to mission readiness and having a strong family support structure enables Sailors to excel at their jobs and the Navy to accomplish its missions. Your help successfully navigates the unique challenges of our lifestyle and know that the job you do is immeasurable!
Thank you, Ombudsmen, for your continued support and selfless dedication.
MCPON and Theresa Stevens"
