Patrol Squadron (VP) 4 “The Skinny Dragons”

At VP-4, we recognize that spouses, children, dependents, and even extended family members are important members of our Skinny Dragon Family. From our trained Command Ombudsmen to spouses clubs and family activity days, we strive to ensure that all Skinny Dragons receive the tools and support they need to succeed!


We are fortunate to have two trained Ombudsmen at PATRON FOUR. These dedicated volunteers received extensive training in virtually every aspect of Navy family support and have been officially-designated by the squadron Commanding Officer. They function as communications links, information resources, referral services, and command family member advocates. They are also responsible for publishing the monthly command Ombudsman Newsletter that is mailed to all squadron families. If you have a question, they can find the answer! You can contact the VP-4 Ombudsman at

Officers' Spouse Club (OSC)

The VP-4 OSC is a command-endorsed group open to spouses of all Commissioned and Warrant Officers in VP-4. It is a great way to meet other spouses, learn about your new duty station, and engage in charitable works in the community. Meetings are held once a month, and numerous charity fundraisers and socials are held throughout the year. Past activities have included: charity auctions, charity breakfast sales, socials, deployment care packages, and more!
