A must-have for every Navy spouse!  Here you’ll find support services, benefits, privileges, healthcare, social customs and protocol, changing duty stations, and deployments. Also included is information on the Navy’s history, mission, and structure, a glossary of terms and acronyms, and a list of resources.

This publication is an excellent addition to Command Welcome Aboard Packages, pre-deployment briefings, and new spouse orientation classes.
