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!

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."

Ladies, I hope your sailors treat you well for Valentines, with them at least getting in touch with you to say how they Love You! Seems the time is sure moving along quickly, now that 'cupid' is out and about again! Happy Valentines Day!

Thanks for the welcome! May be a bit premature for me to join, as one of my sailors is not here just yet. Thought may be beneficial for my to gather as much info as possible, before he deploys!
