Swell Time

Moving forward, just not sure where we're going, but at least we're having a swell time when we do it.

Navy Safe Harbor

One of the great benefits of working at the Naval Senior Enlisted Academy is the exposure to so many different things. Just a few weeks ago one of the briefers talked to the class about Navy Safe Harbor. I had not heard of the program and I was surprised to find out that this is a program specifically created for Navy and Coast Guard personnel.

Navy Safe Harbor is designed to provide non-medical care for seriously wounded, ill, and injured Sailors, Coast Guardsmen, and their families. They work to ensure that not only those wounded while in battle are cared for but any member who is ill or injured.

Below are some of the services that Navy Safe Harbor provides:

  • Comprehensive Recovery Plan development
  • pay and personnel issues
  • invitational travel orders
  • lodging and housing adaption
  • child and youth care
  • transportation needs
  • legal and guardianship issues
  • education and training benefits
  • commissary and exchange access
  • respite care
  • TBI/PTSD support services
  • and much more

Eligibility

All seriously wounded, ill, and injured Sailors, Coast Guardsmen, and their families:

  • OEF/OIF/OND casualties
  • Shipboard accidents
  • Liberty accidents
  • Serious illnesses (physical or psychological)

Enrollment in the Navy Safe Harbor is voluntary, and the program provides a lifetime of care.
