Command Information


Welcome Aboard!

Congratulations on your orders and welcome to NRD Los Angeles! Recruiting duty is important and challenging, and I am sure you will find great personal satisfaction in contributing in a very real way to Navy's overall strength and effectiveness.


Los Angeles is one of the largest and most exciting recruiting districts in the country. We enlist nearly 2,600 men and women each year. We work hard, play hard and do it as a team! You'll soon come to find that Los Angeles cannot be matched in its ethnic and social diversity, and the weather is second to none. Whatever your off-duty interests are, you'll find them here or a short drive away.


Following NORU, you must report for administrative check-in to District headquarters, located at 100 N. Sepulveda Blvd, Suite 950, El Segundo, Calif., 90245. Do not report to PSD Port Hueneme. As soon as you know the day you are going to check-in, call our Administrative Office at (800) 252-1588 extension 282 or 231. When you arrive at the NRD, report to the Administrative Office. Call in advance if you must report after working hours or on a weekend/holiday. These procedures will save you travel from Port Hueneme to Los Angeles more than once.


It takes at least 20 working days after reporting to the NRD for PSD to liquidate your travel claim. Consider this when you decide whether or not to elect advance travel pay upon your transfer. Plan ahead for moving expenses. Los Angeles, like most metropolitan areas has a relatively high cost of living.


Supplemental insurance is recommended to help pay for costs beyond those covered by CHAMPUS/TRICARE for your dependents. Our command Health Advisor is LTJG Robinson and can be located at headquarters and reached at (626) 255-6119.


If you have any questions or require additional assistance, please contact your sponsor. Additionally, the Command Master Chief, can be reached at 1-800-252-1588, ext. 224 and is always available to assist you in any way. To contact our Ombudsman by email; or visit our Facebook page at NRD LA Ombudsman.

Your sponsor may be contacted at (310) 640-6100, ext. 225.
Please feel free to contact your sponsor with any specific questions and help in relocating to Los Angeles.


I look forward to meeting you. Welcome Aboard!
