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!

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

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.

I found out from the Navy Operations Security Support Team on Facebook that there is a new edition of the Navy Social Media Handbook for 2019. It is long, and for a varied audience: Leaders, "Navy Communicators", Sailors, Families, Ombudsmen, and Navy Civilians. It informative, and worth the time to read. For most of our members, I would recommend special attention to section for Families, but there is some really interesting material in the Communicators section.

Much of the information for families echoes what is already in our Community Guidelines, the OPSEC checklist, and other OPSEC/PERSEC (Personal Security) documents and discussions on this site.

Regarding this site, please be aware that everything here is visible to the whole world, permanently. (The Internet remembers everything.) Do not share or discuss sensitive information. Furthermore, while the volunteers who administer this site and the groups try to keep an eye on things, they have no way of verifying the identity of any member, or knowing if someone's password is compromised or easily guessed. We could very well have spies, trolls, and other such malefactors. When it comes to operational matters, if they don't know they probably don't need to know.

Our no-last-names policy should not be relied on for security purposes. These days, at least, it is more to allow people to ask advice without repercussions to their sailors. If you post similar things to other social media platforms e.g. Facebook, it can be pretty easy to correlate profiles.
