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.

Ahh..  I assume that since comments were "closed" for your blog - something interest? controversial? was posted. If you are talking about the propensity of moms to cherish that box full of dirty clothes, I won't go there because moms know what it mean - no explanations necessary.

hey I didn't get the box now as I think back I got cheated  !

Hey, BK how are you? Will try soon to give you a jingle. Funny for both of us to have boys that are out. I am been very busy with my high school group. Rounding up everyone for our big reunion in 3 years. The memories. I started a secret Facebook group for us - stupid me - you would think I'd know better.
