Moving is a way of life for service members and their families. Resources like MilitaryINSTALLATIONS, Plan My Move and Military OneSource provide important information to help make moving easier. For many newcomers, a sponsor can help add that personal touch.
A sponsor is assigned by a newcomer's gaining unit and helps the newcomer before, during and after a move. If you haven't been assigned a sponsor, you can request one through your new unit. Units try to match sponsors and service members by rank and family status.
Sponsorship is also available for youth. Installation youth sponsorship programs help military-connected youth make a successful transition to a new community. Primarily directed to preteen and teenaged youth, installation youth programs/centers provide information and materials on programs and services available at their new location. Where available, youth can exchange emails, talk on the phone or chat online with other youth. The youth program staff at your new installation can offer more information on installation youth sponsorship programs.
You can also contact your installation School Liaison Program office for information about school-based youth sponsorship programs such as Anchored4Life and Student2Student. These peer-to-peer programs help your student adjust to and navigate their new school.
If your child would like to become a youth sponsor, contact your installation School Liaison Program or youth program/center.

Congratulations on your assignment to Naval Support Activity Northwest Annex, Chesapeake, Virginia. We would like to welcome you aboard. Contact your gaining command to request a sponsor to assist you with your transition. Once your sponsor is assigned, be sure to ask about your command's specific check-in policy. This is especially important if you will be checking in while your new command is deployed.
Don't forget to ask your sponsor about forwarding your mail while in route or simply ask your local Post Office for other options, in regards to holding and forwarding your mail. It is wise to keep in close contact with your command sponsor. Your sponsor will be the primary point of contact at your new command, providing you with important information about your new command and the surrounding communities. If you are unsure of where to go, you can stop by the Military Information Booth at the Norfolk International Airport or the United Service Organizations of Hampton Roads at the Norfolk or Newport News/Williamsburg International Airports. You may also contact the Northwest Command Duty Officer at 757-567-2850. Be sure to have your service record and orders when you check-in. If your sponsor does not meet you personally upon arrival to the area, military personnel should report to commands as follows:
