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:

Sorry I am in North Carolina and do not plan to be out in Washington in July when my daughter Graduates C School and then will bne off to Yokosuka Japan for up to two years. She has been at Whidbey island a week and two days and working on jets returning from Afganistan. She is the ONLY female in her Squadron! They have nicknamed her "Skirt". LOL She loves it at Whidbey and is so happy to be out of Pensacola! if anyone is near Whidbey that can meet my daughter and get her out off base email me here to my inbox. Thanks and bless you all!! i am in North Carolina (Actually am a washingtonian and grew up in Puyallup Washington) I have not been back there since 1988! Long Time I know!
