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."

Does anyone have a loved one going through Navy OCS Class #10-22

Hi Everyone, My name is Jan. My daughter Molly is currently attending the OCS Class #10-22. Although we spent 24 years living an active duty military lifestyle, it was in the Air Force so I know very little about procedures of the Navy. I am finding conflicting information regarding what we are able to include in care/candio boxes. Specifically whether non-perishable food can be included. It seems like things may change from class to class so I just don't know. I read the Candio Box information…See More

Hi mollysmom - I saw that you had posted a note in the main room chat yesterday. As B'sNukeMom said, many people just don't see the chat room, for some it doesn't even show up on their devices. 

If you go to your group and scroll down to the comment wall on that group, that is the best location to post your questions and to see about any feedback. Most members follow the comments in their personal email feed and are more likely to reply if there is a post. 

I also recommend that you join the moms of daughters group. (click on the blue letters below). I believe Anna is the group leader and her daughters are officers, I think. My son is enlisted so I am not in the OCS groups, but I post in various groups on here and I do tend to notice the chats but only if I have been logged into the N4M site on my computer. 

All the best to your daughter. If she happens to be assigned to Norfolk, VA once she is done with school, don't hesitate to reach out to me and maybe I can answer some questions for you about the area. If you want to go to someone's profile page, click on their profile picture and it will take you to their page. Then you may leave comments on their page, if they do not have it set to private. If it is set to private, you will have to send a friend request. 

I posted this discussion in the boot camp mom group; you might not be able to post a reply, but you can read it - Private Messages - Creating & Sending + OPSEC - It explains how to do friend requests and our private messaging on this site. 

Have a wonderful Friday!

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!!
