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

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."

Follow this link for OPSEC Guidelines:

**UPDATE 7/29/2021** You now must be fully vaccinated in order to attend PIR:

I am so sorry to not be able to get there. I had an obligation that I could not get out of. Tried. I hope you will include my name for next meet n greet you may have in future. I feel very isolated up here in San Francisco!! No Navy moms that I know of nearby! Hope your and everyone's day was wonderful!

I just noticed that I added 7 to 20 and came up with 28. Hard to believe I got an "A" in college calculus. ROFLMAO. Bea

20 families with two for Bea, Sharon, Khensey, LoriLab, TrekkieDad, JJsMom, Marsha = 28.
It's going to be great!
