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!

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."

Events

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.

He does look like a giant, doesn't he?

I'm OK, slight leg injury, but it's getting better.

Thank you ... can you guess which one is mine?

Hi Sheila,

Nice to see you! I sent a message to all the members of the other group, but I have a feeling that many of them don't come on N4Ms much any more.

We have this group to ourselves, so far, Perhaps that's why S wanted to delete the other group, because there was little active participation?
Comment by Valtameri on September 1, 2011 at 11:21pm
Is that your son's ship? That was a biiigggg gap!
Comment by Valtameri on August 31, 2011 at 8:08pm

Nice to see you. You should get a prize for being my first member! :)

Your son is a Shellback (crossed the equator) -- congrats!

Everything is pretty good with us.
