This site is for mothers of kids in the U.S. Navy and for Moms who have questions about Navy life for their kids.
FIRST TIME HERE?
Follow these steps to get started!
Choose your Username. No last names are allowed for the privacy and safety of you and your sailor, even if your last name differs. Go to "Settings" above to set your Username. While there, complete your Profile so you can post and share photos and videos of your Sailor and share stories with other moms!
Join groups! Browse for groups for your PIR date, your sailor's occupational specialty, "A" school, assigned ship, homeport city, your own city or state, and a myriad of other interests. Jump in and introduce yourself! Start making friends that can last a lifetime.

Click on OPSEC and PERSEC (Making Changes to Your Profile) and the Page will open in a new window. Read the Page and follow the directions at the bottom to make change 3 (see the words in bold) so that this page is no longer visible to EVERYONE (Anyone) with access to the web. Don’t forget to click the “Save” button at the bottom.
There may be other changes you need to make as well, so read and consider each of the changes.
Another change that I recommend that is mentioned in change 1 is to change the ZIP Code to one that is not easily associated with you or your recruit.
The RDC MAY be able to schedule a holiday call. Don't expect a call, but have your phone available and be pleasantly surprised if you receive a call. (See Phone Cards and Phone Calls for more information.)
Your Sailor will most likely fly out to "A" School the day after PIR, but may fly out on Sunday due to flight availability issues. Plan to leave on Sunday if you are able. See PIR Day and Liberty during PIR Weekend to help you know how to plan your weekend.
Comments on this page are for you. Others do not see them unless they happen by. To reply to a comment here, click on "Comment Back" or "View Thread" (you will have to do that if the person has their profile set to "Just My Friends") below the comment.
Members are looking forward to meeting you and answering your questions!
Make sure to read our Community Guidelines, and recommendations 1 - 7 at this OPSEC/PERSEC page. We ask that you not use your last name in your Username (even if it differs from your Sailor's) and not post photos with names visible on uniforms, for OPSEC reasons and the privacy of both you and our Sailors. Go to “Settings” on the main page to set your Username, add a profile image and complete your Profile.
Jump right in! Browse around the site and check out the groups and their Discussion Forums. You can search groups for your PIR date, your Sailor's occupational specialty and "A" school, homeport and ship, and also your home state and/or city and interests from care package ideas to getting ready for deployment.
Be sure to introduce yourself when you join a group, and feel free to ask questions - we were all new to this once :) We look forward to reading more about you and your Sailor!
