This site is for mothers of kids in the U.S. Navy and for Moms who have questions about Navy life for their kids.



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!

Make sure to read our Community Guidelines and this Navy Operations Security (OPSEC) checklist - loose lips sink ships!

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.

OPSEC - Navy Operations Security

Always keep Navy Operations Security in mind.  In the Navy, it's essential to remember that "loose lips sink ships."  OPSEC is everyone's responsibility. 

DON'T post critical information including future destinations or ports of call; future operations, exercises or missions; deployment or homecoming dates.  

DO be smart, use your head, always think OPSEC when using texts, email, phone, and social media, and watch this video: "Importance of Navy OPSEC."

Please note! Changes to this guide happened in October 2017. There are now tickets issued, and there are no longer parking passes for PIR.

Please see changes to attending PIR in the PAGES column. The PAGES are located under the member icons on the right side.

Hi N4M's: I thought I should probably let you know about this ladies... because I know you get bummed when the site does go down. This looks like a short one though... Sincerely, Catherine

A message to all members of Ning Network Creators

Hello there!

We wanted to let you know that we are rolling out a new release to your network on Ning this Thursday, June 5, from 9 to 9:15 p.m. Your network will be offline during this brief window.

There are a number of features in this release, including:

1) Forum Improvements. In addition to a redesigned forum, you will now have the option to choose between two styles of threads: "Flat," where replies are shown in chronological order, or "Threaded," where replies are indented below the post or the reply that they respond to.

2) Allow members to customize their My Page layout. Members will now be able to drag-and-drop modules around their profile pages. If you'd like to disable this option - or the ability for members to make any appearance changes - you can do this too.

3) Enhanced Widget Distribution. You and your members can easily spread your network's badges, widgets, individual videos and photo album slideshows to MySpace, Facebook and 15 other popular destinations without the need to copy and paste HTML embed code.

To learn more about this release, check out:
