Sponsorship Program

The Navy Sponsor Program was established to facilitate the relocation of Naval personnel and their families when transferring on Permanent Change of Station orders. Prospective staff members shall receive a welcome aboard package prior to departing their current command which provides accurate and complete information concerning this command, the base, and Okinawa, Japan.
About Our Program
Our policy is that every person in receipt of Permanent Change of Station (PCS) orders to this command will be assigned a sponsor to assist in their transition to living and working in Okinawa, Japan. The sponsors will be actively involved with the program, providing guidance and/or information to assure a smooth transition into this command and into Okinawa, Japan.
How do I get assigned a Command Sponsor?
Normally, upon this command's receipt of PCS orders you will receive a Welcome Aboard Message.   Once a  sponsor is assigned the sponsorship coordinator  will contact you in writing by mail. If you have received PCS orders to U. S. Naval Hospital, Okinawa and have not received a welcome aboard package, you can contact us by any of the following methods:
