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. For the privacy and safety of you and/or your sailor,NO LAST NAMES ARE ALLOWED, even if your last name differs from that of your sailor (please make sure your URL address does not include your last name either). Also, please do not include your email address in your user name. 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.
"Definitely a roller coaster! Just make sure to always have a phone on you, because you never know when they will call. Even more important when they are deployed. They can occasionally Skype or whatever:)."
"Oleander, definitely beginning to melt, as I'm sure you are:). Thinking of moving to washinton where my daughter is...at least for 6 months:).
Welcome to all the new mom's, this is a great group!
Anna, how are you doing with recovery?
"Yep, mid 70's in Phoenix. I can't imagine the freezing weather others are having. To me it's freezing in mid 40's which obviously it's not.
Prayers continuing for all our sailors, may 2018 be a great year for all!"
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 Sailor.
How do I find the AZ group? Most people around look at me blankly when I say my daughter joined the Navy, as this is Air Force territory! However, I grew up in San Diego which is a huge Navy town and back then they still had NTC.
I see you recently joined the Moms of Daughters 2 group and I want to welcome you!!! We are a friendly caring group of moms and are always willing to listen, share and help each other whenever or wherever we can. Please feel free to join our chats, we love talking about everything from work, family, weather - whatever. Plus the joyful and anxiety filled journey of being a Navy Mom!!! I see you also belong to the WA/OR group. I belong to that group because my daughter is out there. There is another mom, Sarah's Mom, on that group that has a daughter on the USS Shoup. Maybe your daughters know each other!! Looking forward to learning about you and your sailor!!! Again, Welcome Aboard!!
