Helicopter Sea Combat Squadron (HSC) 4 “ Black Knights”

Squadron Ombudsman

Legendary Black Knights,

Welcome to HSC-4 and beautiful San Diego. I am the Ombudsman for the command and am here to assist you and your family.

Ombudsmen are designated by the command to serve as communication links between the Commanding Officer and command family members, as well as trained information and referral specialists. We are your advocates ready to support, direct, and empower you with all of the resources available. Please be assured that Ombudsmen follow the guidelines of confidentiality as required by the Navy Family Ombudsman Program. We have many years of family experience and have experienced the ups and downs that come with being part of a Navy family. As a team, we look forward to providing assistance that you might need during your time at the new duty station. Once again, I look forward to meeting you at the command orientation and/or command functions.


Mrs. Kate Palomolemus
