The Exceptional Family Member Program identifies sponsors of family members with special medical, medically related, and educational needs. 

The Exceptional Family Member sponsor names are provided to officer and enlisted detailers who will make every effort to ensure the services are available at the sponsor’s next duty station to meet the family’s needs.

The program also ensures that Exceptional Family Members sponsors whose family members require ongoing specialized medical care are located within major medical facility areas.

Additional Information:

The Navy encourages sponsor enrollment at least 10 months prior to a Permanent Change of Station (PCS) move, so the detailer will have time to work with the sponsor and pinpoint the best possible assignment to meet both the Navy’s needs and the family’s special needs.

A sponsor does not have to be eligible for orders to register. Enrollment does not prevent a sponsor from meeting their sea duty obligations nor will it preclude a member for accepting a voluntary unaccompanied tour.
