Commander Joint Forces New Zealand, Rear Admiral Jim Gilmour
Welcome to the New Zealand Defence Force operational welfare website HOMEBASE.
I am Rear Admiral Jim Gilmore the Commander of Joint Forces New Zealand.
HOMEBASE is designed for our deployment community, which includes all our deployed personnel, their families and those who work to support them while they are away.
This website will allow our community to communicate and share information in a in a way that will both enable us to support you, and empower you to help yourselves.
Working together we can offer our deployment community the best support, which in turn, will allow our people to give their best efforts while overseas.
For those who are deployed it is important to feel that families and friends are able to cope with their absence, and that the Defence community will provide support when needed.
You can be assured that I, as Commander Joint Forces New Zealand, take this responsibility very seriously.
Once again thank you for your support and welcome to HOMEBASE.
