The Navy wants input from sailors and officers about what could be done to improve the sorry state of its family and unaccompanied housing. In a service-wide announcement issued this month, the service is asking its members to take part in a series of housing surveys, aimed at providing “a better understanding of overall resident satisfaction and an opportunity for residents to tell us about their housing experience and concerns,” the announcement stated.

The Navy plans to use the constructive feedback it receives from survey respondents to determine which housing services work and which do not. To ensure that command influence will not play a role, an independent contractor is conducting the survey. Prospective respondents will receive their surveys either by regular mail or email.

The process began in March and will continue through early June.
