Command Information


Welcome Aboard!


Now that you have orders to NRD Pittsburgh you are about to embark on a very challenging and rewarding tour that is unlike any other in the United States Navy. Let me be the first to welcome you to "Team Pittsburgh", and the Pittsburgh area. I am confident that you will find this assignment to be one of the most challenging and rewarding assignments of your Navy career! Our district covers approximately 65,000 square miles of territory across the states of Pennsylvania, New York, West Virginia, and Maryland and you now have the potential to be stationed anywhere in our district as the face of the Navy in one of these areas.

NRD Pittsburgh is located on the 20th floor in room 2014 of the William S. Morehead federal Building in downtown Pittsburgh at 1000 Liberty Ave. You can park across the street at the Greyhound terminal. Enter the Federal building from the Liberty Ave side. There are elevators to your right or left. If you have any problems with your sponsor contacting you, you should direct your questions to Command Master Chief Gerard Chiu at: (412) 395-5755, 412-735-5014 or our main number (412) 395-5895.

Once again welcome aboard, Shipmate, and welcome to one of the Navy's finest teams!

NRD Pittsburgh's Ombudsman

Selected by the commanding officer, your Ombudsman is a spouse of a member of the command who voluntarily serves as an official liaison between the command and its families. As a spouse, it's important to get acquainted with your local Ombudsman. The Ombudsman is not a counselor or a social worker, but can show you the direct route toward finding solutions by helping you get the assistance you need.
