Deployed Forces Support
MWR's Deployed Forces Support Program enhances the quality of life for more than 180,000 Sailors and Marines at sea and forward-deployed Navy ground forces. Sports, recreational programs, physical fitness equipment, social activities (parties/picnics), tours, subsidies/rebates and gear locker checkout are just a few of the morale-enhancing opportunities offered.
Deployed Forces Support Coordinators (DFSCs) are located at major fleet concentration areas throughout the world DFSCs assist ships and forward-deployed ground forces with programming, financial management, recreation administration, procurement and property management. DFSCs are civilian recreation and fitness professionals exclusively dedicated to supporting the MWR needs of the fleet and forward-deployed ground forces.
CNIC's MWR Afloat Specialist is comprised of civilian government employees working as either an Afloat Recreation Specialist (Fun Boss) and Afloat Fitness Specialist (Fit Boss) who serve aboard aircraft carriers, amphibious assault ships and sometimes USNS Hospital ships. Fun and Fit bosses work together in providing fitness and recreation programs for shipboard Sailors and Marines.
