As a Navy mom myself, I know how important a group like this is. I have found military moms to be very willing to help in any situation and a great comfort for those who’s child is going off to boot camp or dealing with deployment.
Today I am talking with the creator of Navy Mom Support Group.
Please welcome Kim
Hi. My husband and I have two biological children and we adopted 4 teenagers because we wanted to try to make a positive difference for our adopted children. I have two children and a granddaughter and grandson in law in the Navy and I have one daughter in the Air Force, one daughter in school for her Masters, one daughter in Corrections and 1 working in private sector.
What inspired you to create this group?
I started the Navy Mom Support group because I have children in the Navy and I was so unprepared. My group enables me to help other people through the boot camp and beyond phase. I am retired from the Federal Court and I enjoy spending time helping family members of Navy Recruits.
What would you like this group to accomplish?
My goal with this group is to support and assist families of the military.

I can relate less to this one but can see how it must be very helpful to those whose children choose to join the Navy. One of my childhood best friends became an army wife – and that’s been a challenge for her at times which I think those outside of that life (like me) just can’t really understand.
There are so many things to learn once your child enlists in the military, especially if you come from a family who never had anyone serve in the armed services before. Military life can be different in many ways to civilian life. It’s always good, whatever the circumstances, to talk to someone who can relate to what you are going through.
Wonderful post. These new sailors really need this support. As the mom of a Navy daughter, I know how wonderful the Navy is about involving families in the sailor’s world. I have a blog called USNA or Bust that helps high schoolers pursue their dream of joining the Navy, this one through USNA.
Thank you to your daughter for her service and HELLO fellow navy mom! What a great idea your blog is. My son has been in the Navy since 2000 and is now a chief. I also have a son-in-law in the Navy and a chief as well.
We’re not too far from a Naval base, so we see Navy men and women fairly frequently. I always salute when we do. My brother was Navy when I was a very little girl. 🙂
That is nice of you to do. It’s sad to say but some people don’t appreciate all that the military does for us.
No, no they don’t, unfortunately.
I love the idea of anything that supports and encourages our military and their families!

My son is a Master Chief in the Navy! I am very proud of him❤️. Military families are very strong supporters of each other unlike the civilian population.
I saw your son and son-in-law are Chiefs, where are they stationed. My son Chris is at Norfolk.
Both are stationed in Norfolk.
Wouldn’t it be cool if our sons knew each other
Norfolk is a big base, but you never know.
