Making a Sailor: Episode 1 - "Get on the Bus"

Making a Sailor: Episode 2 - "What did I get myself into?"

Making a Sailor: Episode 3 - "Processing Days"

Making a Sailor: Episode 4 - "Forming"

Boot Camp: Making a Sailor - Episode 5

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."

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.

Since you have a recruit at RTC, then you can change "Thinking about joining" above to “Enlisted”or “At Boot Camp now.” Either is appropriate, but if you make the change to “Enlisted” now, then you will not have to change it again. 

You can make that change when you make change 3 below.

Also consider change 5.

I see you have joined Religious Program Specialist. 

The Rating Information card for RP can be found at https://www.cool.navy.mil/usn/enlisted/rating_info_cards/rp.pdf. (If you get the security warning, it is safe to go there.)  https://www.cool.navy.mil/usn/LaDR/rp_e1_e9.pdf and https://www.thebalancecareers.com/career-profile-chaplain-assistants-2356466 have more info for you.

"A" School is in Fort Jackson, SC. After that, she will most likely go to Camp Lejeune, NC for additional training. You may also want to check out Camp Lejeune and FMTB-East Moms, Families and Friends at that time.

Your Sailor will most likely fly out to "A" School the day after PIR. Plan to leave late Saturday or on Sunday. See PIR Day and Liberty during PIR Weekend to help you know how to plan your weekend.

Welcome to Boot Camp Moms (and loved ones). I look forward to sharing this journey with you. Be sure to check out the Pages (found under the pictures of the Members) for information on what to expect and to help you prepare for PIR. Start with OPSEC and PERSEC (Making Changes to Your Profile) and Arrival and What Happens at RTC and read 1 or 2 pages a day and then go back to them as you need the info.  

Take care and blessings to you and yours.

August 20 will be here soon.

Your future Sailor may want to join http://www.navydep.com to learn the ins and outs from the DEpoint of view.  

Be sure to check out the discussion, Things to Do in the Last Month before Your Future Sailor Leaves for RTC 

Arrival and What Happens at the RTC within Boot Camp Moms (and loved ones) will let you know what will happen and what to expect.

Be sure to join your PIR group once you get The Form Letter, which now arrives 9 to 14 business days after your recruit's arrival at RTC. Let me know when you know your recruit's ship and division. I will have more info for you.

Make at least change 3 at the bottom of OPSEC and PERSEC (Making Changes to Your Profile) (clickable link) and change the Privacy Settings for this page from "Anyone" to "Members." 

There may be other changes you need to make as well, so read and consider each of the changes.

Welcome to NAVYforMoms.com!   

Head to “Settings” on the main page right away to add a profile image (no last names visible, please) and complete your Profile. Then - and this is important! - read these Community Guidelines and this Operations Security (OPSEC) Checklist, for the safety and privacy of all our Sailors.

Then jump right in!  Browse around the site and check out the groups and the information in their Discussion Forums.

Join this group for boot camp moms, where you'll also find a group for your Pass in Review (graduation) date; and this one for PIR Reference Information.  

Get a head start during boot camp by joining groups for, and learning about, your Sailor's occupational specialty and "A" School; and later your Sailor's duty station and/or Navy ship and homeport. You can also join groups for your own state, region or home town and interests from getting ready for deployment to care package ideas!

Please say Hi when you join a group, and feel free to ask any and all questions - everyone was new once, and there is no "dumb" question. 

This site was created by the U.S. Navy just for you, and we look forward to getting to know you and your Sailor.  

Welcome to the NAVY family - we're so glad you're here!!
