GROUPS: Listed by Name of US Naval Ships (actual US Naval vessels in service)
Looking for other Navy For Moms members with sailors on the same ship/boat?
Here is a list in alphabetical order by name of ship. List doe NOT include groups with fewer than 3 members and/or groups which have been inactive in the last 8 months. Cllckable links have been provided. Just click on the name of the ship. Please post a comment if I missed your sailor's ship (with a link, if possible). Please note that if your son/daughter is in boot camp, his/her barracks are named after ships. The groups listed below are not Navy For Moms groups designated for barracks (please see groups associated with PIR dates). Edited & updated Feb 2017 by BunkerQB.
This list refers to the REAL thing - with sailors, guns, etc.
name of group last date of comment/activity
You may also find members with sons/daughters on a particular ship in one of the following groups, or start your own - it's easy and fun:
AMPHIBIOUS (GATOR NAVY) Active
CARRIER FAMILIES Active
DESTROYER MOMS Active
FRIGATE MOMS (last activity May 2014)
HELICOPTER SQUADRON 14 (last activity Jul 2013)
PELELIU READY GROUP (AMPHIBIOUS SQUADRON 3) (last activity Dec 2014)
SUB MOMS Active
I have listed 168 groups associated with ships plus the above 8 groups. If you have a group that is currently active and would like to have the link to your group included on the above list, please post a comment with the link and/or send me a message.
Checked the information on the ships as they are listed with the Naval Vessel Register. You'll find it quite interesting.

Many of the subs don't have a N4M group. My son's sub does not. I have the contact information for a number of the moms whose sons are on my son's sub. Periodically we communicate by regular email and phone. They do have a Family Readiness Group on Facebook.
I did not see a FB Family Readiness Group for the USS Henry Jackson on FB but here is what I have found.
If you decide to start a group for the USS Henry Jackson (rather than a discussion within the sub moms' group), just post the link here and I will add the group to the above list.
Evelyn,No one has started a group yet (doesn't mean there aren't any members with sailors on the Uss Kentucky. If you would like to start one, please do so and post the link here. I will add the name to the list. Then you can go out try and find some of the other moms, dads, wives, gfs. My son's sub does not have a group either.
Here is the new Stennis Support Group, the previous one is going to shut down:
Is there something - ship, carrier, boat, destroyer, sub, whatever named for Springfield, MA? Just heard a comment that there was, but I have never heard of one.
