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.
I actually start school on the 29th and students will start on the 3rd. Have spent summer preparing to teach one of my courses online this year. Interesting concept, I will need subs for classroom but will continue to teach online when I am at Great Lakes Graduation! Which by the way... I can't wait for the 27th of September!
The info Lance gets from the dad's has really helped me, especially when Savannah corrected your husband with Mike's last name! It just made me feel a little bit closer to knowing that he is okay and making friends. We are hoping to get a letter today and believe his wisdom teeth were pulled last Friday so no call. Can't wait to meet your family too.
Hi, welcome toBoot Camp Moms (and loved ones). I look forward to sharing this journey with you. I see that you have changed your Username so that it no longer contains your last name; you also need to change the URL to this page to remove it from there as well. Number 2 at the bottom ofOPSEC and PERSEC (Making Changes to Your Profile)(clickable link) will tell you how to fix that. There may be other changes you will want to make as well, such as numbers 3 and 4.What is your SR's rating (job/specialty) going to be? There are groups for most ratings and/or "A" Schools and knowing that will help you to better plan for PIR weekend. Take care and blessings to you and yours.
