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!
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.
All Hands Magazine's mini-documentary series "Making a Sailor": These six videos follow four recruits through Boot Camp in the spring of 2018 who were assigned to DIV 229, an integrated division, which had PIR on 05/25/2018.
He should let you know how to address letters so that he will receive them and still maintain PERSEC (and OPSEC in some cases). Using his Middle name rather than his first name on snail mail to his miltary address would cause confusion and delay mail to him, so don't do that, but using his middle name rather than his first and/or last name online would increase PERSEC--not using any part of his name or yours would increase it even more. When I write to my Sailor at his off base address, I do not include MA2, but when I mail to a military address, I do, but he does not have a Spook rating. Hmmm Let me know what your Sailor says. Some have said that a few of us go overboard on PERSEC, but I think that it is better to reveal less than is permitted and be safe than to post things and risk a problem.
Thanks for the Friend request; I hope we can be around for some time to support each other. If there is ever anything I can help you with, don't hesitate to ask. Take care and blessings to you and yours
Noni, so, where did you fly into for Christmas in CA? My son flew out of Monterey to Reno, circled the airport and ret'd to Monterey. Got home 4 days later on Christmas night. I was pretty down about that!! But it was a great holiday after we got him home. Guess you can always count of the weather to throw a loop into any plan.
You should click "Setting" then change your profile to private. After that, only your friends can see your page. I am BunkerQB, admin/creator for the San Fran Bay Area Navy Families Group. We have a few members in the Monterey area and of course, most of us have been to the Monterey Peninsula a few times. It's a beautiful area. I live up the Peninsula half way between San Jose and San Francisco. There is not a Navy For Moms group in the Monterey area; however, there is a CTI Moms group with sailors going to the Language school (oops see you belong to that group already). Feel free to drop in on the SF group if you have any questions about the area. We'll try out best to answer your questions.
My son finished his 5 year commitment to the Navy. He is now just 45 minutes from me but we got more calls from him when he was in Hawaii!
