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:

I wish there was a possibility!! Hubby and I aren't able to attend. Our Sailor is there @ Tinker. My prayers are with everyone who helps this wonderful cause! Hopefully there will be something in Georgia....near us, or at least within driving distance.

I would love to go, but can't afford to do it at this time. If there is anything like this happening around Northern CA or even OR let me know, I will make a effort to make it.
I hope you all have a great time and God bless you all for doing this.
