Stage of (Sailor’s) Navy career?
When I heard “Navy,” I...
Was proud and encouraged it
The Navy offers opportunities that...
My Ancestor Dr. Shad rack Winslow he became a prisoner on the Old Glory... Don't think you know to much you could be a prisoner on your own ship.
Our Navy experience so far...
It was positive and maturing. Our relationship has grown stronger.

Go to “Settings” on the main page to set your Username, add a profile image and complete your Profile.
Jump right in! Browse around the site and check out the groups and their Discussion Forums. You can search groups for your PIR date, your Sailor's occupational specialty and "A" school, homeport and ship, and also your home state and/or city and interests from getting ready for deployment to care package ideas.
Be sure to introduce yourself when you join a group, and feel free to ask questions - we were all new to this once :) We look forward to reading more about you and your Sailor!
Comments on this page are for you. Others do not see them unless they happen by. To reply to a comment here, click on "Comment Back" or "View Thread" (you will have to do that if the person has their profile set to "Just My Friends") below the comment.
Click on OPSEC and PERSEC (Making Changes to Your Profile) and the Page will open in a new window. Read the Page and follow the directions at the bottom to make change 3 (see the words in bold) so that this page is no longer visible to EVERYONE (Anyone) with access to the web. I suggest "Just My Friends" since you have included a pic on your My Page. (You can remove it by following the directions in change 5.) Don’t forget to click the “Save” button at the bottom.
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 you or your recruit.
