Update: Army's Ombuds Program for Soldiers Goes Online

The US Army has unveiled a website for the Ombudsman Program in Support of Warriors in Transition. The Army Ombuds function as independent, impartial and neutral mediators for injured soldiers and family members who are in need of assistance in the resolution of problems encountered during their healing process. The Ombuds are contract employees who were selected for their experience, determination, and passion to help soldiers. About 60 Ombuds are employed at 32 locations in the United States, Puerto Rico and Germany. A unique aspect of the website is an online submission form that allows individuals to register complaints anonymously. (Army Ombudsman Program website.)
