Welcome Aboard

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 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 yet, or would like us to send you a welcome aboard package, please contact our Admin Department at (619) 524-6734.


Reporting Aboard

When arriving at San Diego, report in the uniform of the day to NTAG Southwest located in Building 17 on the Point Loma Anti-Submarine Warfare Base. All newly reporting personnel (regardless of your ultimate duty assignment [UDA]) must begin check in at the Admin Office at headquarters. If you are reporting for recruiting duty, the Chief Recruiter (CR) will determine your UDA.


DO NOT procure housing until you have received your UDA from the CR. NTAG Southwest has more than 40 recruiting stations across Southern California, Southern Nevada and in Yuma, Arizona, and you may not end up in the greater San Diego Area. Please contact the CR with any questions at 619-524-4168.


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


NRD San Diego'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.

To contact your Ombudsman, call... 619-405-9866 (Calif.) or 702-882-3457 (Nev./Ariz.).
