Welcome Aboard

We congratulate you on becoming a member of one of the finest and brightest recruiting teams of the nation!

Whether you are assigned duties as a recruiter or as a member of the support staff, we welcome you to one of the most challenging and rewarding assignments in the Navy. We hope that you will accept the challenge and the hard work necessary to become a member of our outstanding team of recruiters and support personnel.

Your sponsor will be providing you with much of the information that is needed in making your transition to the area, as well as assisting you with any immediate transportation that may be needed once you have arrived. Please keep your sponsor advised of your leave address, travel plans and anticipated arrival date.

If you have not been assigned a sponsor or would like a welcome aboard package please contact our Admin Department at (503) 258-2007.


Checking In

Once you arrive at your Navy Talent Acquisition Group, your Leading Petty Officer will contact Admin to arrange a two or three day check-in process at NTAG Headquarters in Portland, Ore., to provide you with recruiting indoctrination at the command level.


Spouses are encouraged to accompany the recruiters, however, their attendance will be voluntary and at no additional cost to the government.




Government Leased Housing
To allow for a smooth transition, requests for Government Leased Housing (GLH) should be submitted prior to your reporting onboard. The entire application process can be completed online by clicking here.


Family Readiness

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.
