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!

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.

Profile Information

A little about me:
I am a mother of 5 adult children; 2 of which choose to service their country through the military - 1 daughter went USAF and 1 son went USNavy/NROTC. My daughter has completed her 6 year enlisted commitment as well as her inactive reserve time. She is a new mom and a used her GI bill to become a school teacher.

My youngest son enlisted his Senior year of high school, but the Navy had other plans for him and sent him to college first thru the NROTC program. It's been a great experience for him. He started as a Nuke Eng major, but has changed to Mathematics. He was selected SWO but a few weeks before graduation and commissioning he was re-assigned to aviation. He started his pilot training 10 days after graduating in Pensacola. He is now in Corpus Christi in his second stage of training.
I am here to support my

Make at least change 3 at the bottom of OPSEC and PERSEC (Making Changes to Your Profile) (clickable link) and change the Privacy Settings for this page from "Anyone" to "Members." 

Also consider change 4.

There may be other changes you need to make as well, so read and consider each of the changes.
