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 just received an e-mail concerning the "Discussion" tab. This is a place where we can go and add our name to our state in case a sailor is in need of assistance .. I would love to be a part of this, my son is in Conn. in A school and I would love to have someone there for him if he was in trouble. However, I cannot find this site. How do I join, any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you, Tracey

If your son is a strong independent type, like mine...he will call when he needs you. Try to remain strong. Mine did not call often! Please try to be strong, send him notes of encouragement, fun newsy stuff from the local paper, his favorite comic strip, or one that you believe would be light hearted or funny to him. I have come to believe that no news is good news, when it comes to the Navy. My best to you as you work through this adjustment.
