    Do all branches have ombudsmen?

    I know Navy has Ombudsmen, but what about the other branches. Does anyone know what the equivalent is in each branch? Is it FRG/FSG? If so, which branches have which?

    Army doesn't, I believe if you're lucky enough to have an FRG leader that does its job that the FRG is equivalent.

    The army has FRG's and FRSA(Family readiness support assistant). FRG's are common, FRSA's not.

    The air force(Active Duty at least) has a first sgt or first "shirt" that is active duty and they are the person that deals with family members and family issues. Each squadron has a first shirt that had to go through school to become one. The report directly to the commander. HTH!

    In the Air Force we have Key Spouses or Key Spouse groups.
