Ombudsman's Message

Welcome to Air Station Detroit, Fellow Coastie!

We are glad you have you here - our Air Station and the great state of Michigan are some of the best kept secrets in the Coast Guard. We hope that you will enjoy your time here and enjoy everything that our unit and the local area have to offer. With city life, amazing wilderness spaces, a beautiful coast, and great on-base amenities, there's something for everyone out here!

While you're here, we hope that you and your family will take advantage of the vibrant spouse's community we have. If you or your spouse is interested in staying connected, we have a mailing list as well as a Motor City Aviation Spouse's Facebook group where you'll find all sorts of resources for the local area (doctors, housing, activities, etc.). Additionally, if you have any questions, we'd be happy to answer them - please feel free to email us at

As your Ombudsman, we are here to help make sure that your time here is safe and happy, and to make sure that you have all the resources available to you to make this a great duty station and a memorable time in your Coast Guard career and your life. please do not hesitate to reach out to us for any needs or questions you might have about benefits, policies, and Coast Guard life in general. We will do our best to answer your question or, if we do not have the exact answer you need, we will help you find it! Best of luck and, again, welcome!
