This site is for mothers of kids in the U.S. Navy and for Moms who have questions about Navy life for their kids.

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."

Follow this link for OPSEC Guidelines:

It's not a good idea to post a pic of your Sailors every time you post. See change 4 at the bottom of OPSEC and PERSEC (Making Changes to Your Profile) (clickable link).

Also make change 3 while you are there so that this page is no longer open to EVERYONE (Anyone) with access to the web.

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 recruit or Sailor.

What is your Sailor's (daughter's) rating (job/specialty) and/or where is she stationed (what vessel, if one)? There may be groups I can direct you to.

What is your recruit's rating (job/specialty) or field going to be? There are groups for most ratings and/or "A" Schools and knowing that will help you to better plan for PIR weekend. Take care and blessings to you and yours.

I see you have joined your PIR group; I also invite you to join Boot Camp Moms (and loved ones) and to check out the Pages (found under the pictures of the Members) there. Take care and blessings to you and yours.

I missed the call, I was bummed, he called on my cell phone, but I was at the hospital with my grandmother, and couldn't get good reception, but he called the house, and he was able to talk to Mike (Stepfather) so at least he got a hold of one of us, good for your daughter she hung in there, I know you are a proud mom, as we all are. Good luck to all are sons/ daughters. Hope to see you there if possible. Gina

Hi Stephanie, it's been a while since we talked, hope your daughter is doing well. My son is doing good so far. I bet our recruits are counting down to see us, just like we are! Are you going to the meet and greet? If so hope to see you there. Hope to talk to you soon. Take care. Gina
