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."

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.

A little about me:
My children have been my lifelong devotion of love and joy. Each of them I carry in my heart and I have watched each grow one into the person that they are. As life changes every day so do people and God in never done with us not until we reach the other side. I have been many things to many people on my life’s journey but my greatest joys have been mom and a few years ago nana. Now one of my new titles will be mother-in-law which I hope I am never the epitome of all the bad jokes.And so I still have many good years in me to love, grow and be amazed at how wonderful life is. To each of you that I carry in my heart I love you more than words can ever express.
I am here to support my

Our Navy experience so far...
It was positive and maturing. Our relationship has grown stronger.

A true sailor fights not because he hates what is in front of him BUT because he loves what is behind him
