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.

Glad to hear your eyes are doing better, make sure you take those breaks and give yourself time to heal. The knee is doing ok, the weekend in GL was a little rough on it. No PT! PIR left me speechless. What a beautiful ceremony. Takes your breath away. Yes, we had him for the whole weekend but it went way too fast. He hasn't started school yet. I think he said he starts on Aug. 16. He's getting settled into his ship and luckily 2 of his roommates were friends of his from his division. Thanks for keeping me updated and I hope you get plenty of time with your son at Christmas!!!

How are you doing? Healing I hope.

Here's to a speedy recovery! I can't believe that just 1 week after surgery I'm doing so well. Stitches come out on Monday and that will make a big difference. Take care of yourself!

Thanks for asking, the knee is doing great. Got the "I'm a Sailor" call today, very exciting. We talked for 30 minutes. He sounded so grown up. Can't believe that's the same boy I sent to BC on June 7th! Can't wait for PIR next Friday!
