This site is for mothers of kids in the U.S. Navy and for Moms who have questions about Navy life for their kids.



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.

This is too funny - I replied to your message by replying to the notice that came in my e-mail and just found out that it came back undeliverable. This was my response from earlier tonight. "Figures.....I will have to try and find it on my iphone or where ever I sent it. Its probably floating out there in lala land. I was responding to all the Chris' and how it would have been funny if they put them all together in one division. Confusing but funny!!" I think I need to give up the computer tonight, I am posting comments all over and then to nowhere at all! I am normally not this confused. Must be all my excitment too. I feel l like a kid again!

Did you get my message from the other day....I sent you a reply but from my iphone and well, gee, I am never sure that I have done it right. The screen is too small for my eyes and my fingers too big for the keyboard....just wanted to make sure that you didn't think I was ignoring you! See you in a week!!
