Sponsors are trained service members who help newcomers settle into a new duty station. They are available to all military families, no matter where you are moving. Sponsors offer a friendly face to greet you and your family at your new location, and provide personal experience and recommendations to help you feel at home. Typically of a similar rank and family status, a sponsor can assist with everything from finding the right housing options, to showing you around the installation and recommending the best places for kids to play.
