Exceptional Family Member Program
EFMP is a DoD program addressing the special needs of NAS Pax River military families. Sailors who have a family member with a medical or educational disability) must enroll in the EFMP so the Navy can do its part in caring for any EFM needs through appropriate assignments and by providing helpful information and referral resources.
NAS Patuxent River would like to learn more about the needs of the local EFMP population through a short, voluntary and anonymous survey at http://www.survey monkey.com/s/QGD75R5. Look at the MWR E-News for future EFMP topics and events. For more EFMP information please contact James Lettner at james.lettnernavy.mil.
