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

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

In light of observed changes and impact of the Coronavirus Delta Variant and out of an abundance of caution for our recruits, Sailors, staff, and guests, Recruit Training Command is restricting Pass-in-Review (recruit graduation) to ONLY fully immunized guests (14-days post final COVID vaccination dose). Specific information on this policy change will be provided in the coming days and weeks. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience and appreciate your support.

**UPDATE 7/16/2021**

RESUMING LIVE PIR - 8/13/2021 - ONLY 2 GUESTS ALLOWED

MASK AND SOCIAL DISTANCING IS REQUIRED. 

NO MASK, NO ENTRY

**UPDATE - 2020**

Due to COVID there is no public PIR. The graduations are on Thursday, and the video of the graduation is posted on RTC's FaceBook on Friday at approx 3pm. Please keep in mind that a division may need to complete additional quarantine during training which will delay their graduation.

Please note! Changes to this guide happened in October 2017. Tickets are now issued for all guests, and all guests must have a ticket to enter base. A separate parking pass is no longer needed to drive on to base for parking.

Please see changes to attending PIR in the PAGES column. The PAGES are located under the member icons on the right side.

Profile Information

A little about me:
Well hello I am Meghan! I am kinda knew to this whole thing. My boyfriend left today (March 9th) on a Sea Tour. I am a senior in high school that is a interested in flight nursing. I really just need someone to talk too and trade stories with. :)
I am here to support my
Spouse/Significant other
Stage of (Sailor’s) Navy career?
Enlisted
When I heard “Navy,” I...
Was proud and encouraged it
The Navy offers opportunities that...
The most important thing that I have learned from this beautiful thing called the Navy is that patience in the key to everything. I remember when my boyfriend went underway and I was freaking out because he would not answer my emails or would just respond with a simple one word response. I have came to the realization that you have to be ready for anything and just go with the flow. You he does not respond back for awhile, he probably has a very good reason why. So just stop worrying and be patience!
Our Navy experience so far...
It was positive and maturing. Our relationship has grown stronger.

Make at least change 3 at the bottom of OPSEC and PERSEC (Making Changes to Your Profile) (clickable link). There may be other changes you need to make as well, so read and consider each of the changes. Another change that I recommend that is mentioned in change 1 is to change the ZIP code to one that is not easily associated with your Sailor.

There are no groups for just loved ones of Electrician's Mate (EM), but you may find some in Engineers, Snipe Moms, and Snipe Moms(enginers).

You may want to join USS Theodore Roosevelt CVN 71, CARRIER Families!, and/or Norfolk Sailors - Family & Friends. (For wives: You can also check out Navy wives of Norfolk/Portsmouth VA and Ladies of VA.)  This fB page may be of interest as well, https://www.facebook.com/USSTheodoreRoosevelt. The home port will shift to San Diego at the end of the current deployment and you will want to join San Diego Moms or Sailors in San Diego, San Diego Moms/SOs, Lemoore NAS California Moms, and/or Sailors Stationed in California at that time if your Sailor is staying with the TR. If your Sailor changes to the GW instead, join USS George Washington Sailors, CARRIER Families!, and/or Norfolk Sailors - Family & Friends.
