The Navy recognizes that families are integral to the success of our mission as much as the Sailors themselves. The ombudsman helps to ensure that your Navy experience is a positive one. CWMA-61 has appointed Mrs. Lauren Anderson as the command ombudsman. Please contact her by email at CWMA61ombudsman@gmail.com or by telephone at 443-274-5566.
If you are not familiar with the ombudsman program, the ombudsman is here to be your voice to the command. The ombudsman is also there for the commanding officer to relay information back to the families. The ombudsman program belongs to the command and is shaped by the commanding officer's perception of the needs of CWMA-61 families. The ombudsman is a voluntary representative of the command, appointed by the commanding officer. The ombudsman is also able to connect with local resources and help in emergency situations.
