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.

I got a call today, did you?  My son sounded very tired, but said he was glad he joined the Navy.

Well, that's a cool name!!!  I haven't met that many with the same name so far!!

BC really is the worst when it comes to hearing from our girls!!  That and certain deployments can also really hamper keeping in touch!!  I was very lucky in that after A school, my daughter had an office job M-F and there were times I heard from her everyday!!!  She separated in Sept and just recently got hired as a civilian contractor at the same command she served at in uniform!!!  As a PS most of those jobs are given to civilians anyway so she lucked out!!!  Not sure what it will be like when my other daughter goes to work for the Navy full-time!!!

Great News, I got a letter today.  It is really odd, there is no postmark. Maybe that created a delay.

 

He is doing great. He said on Thanksgiving that he had prime rib, ham, stuffing, corn & powerade.  He said the days are long and that from Nov 21 to Dec 1 had been phold and pdays for processing. 

 

He said he had received letters from me and that he loved them. I was glad to hear that he is getting mail.

 

He also said he was made section leader. He said his division is 90 and there are 6 sections leads and that he is one of them responsible for 13 recruits. 

 

He said days are long but he is doing great.

 

This letter was written on Dec 2nd, which he said he just finished day 1 of week 1. He said he was in phold and pdays from Nov  21-Dec 1st.
