At various times in their lives our Navy family may need a helping hand during tough times. Use these resources to find the aid they need!
Latest Activity: Mar 26, 2022
After talking with many of you I've realized that our sailors and/or their families often run into tough patches and could use a hand to help them through tough times. Whether it be financial, spiritual, or just feeling down about something or someone, we want to develop a list of resources that are available for them to get some support and help in dealing with a life crisis. We invite any of you to use these resources to help and if you find a link we don't have, please add it so we can aid someone else.

The Navy World Wide Locator helps locate individuals who are either in the Navy (Active Duty and Reserve) or who were in the Navy (Retired, Discharged or Separated). Service member's addresses are protected under the provisions of the Privacy Act and cannot be released. However, we are able to forward mail. If you would like us to forward correspondence to a service member you may mail it to the mailing address below. It will be up to the member to contact you.
The Navy is making efforts :
Navy implemented several tactical prevention initiatives in FY14:
• Command surveys of facilities identified areas that required better lighting,
visibility, and other safety improvements to reduce the vulnerability of Sailors.
• In October 2013, all Navy Fleet Commanders instituted roving barracks patrols,
led by senior enlisted personnel or experienced junior officers, to increase the
visible presence of leadership in order to deter behavior that may lead to sexual
assault or other misconduct.
• Personnel assigned as barracks resident advisors are screened to ensure they
are mature, effective leaders, and receive resident advisor training.
• All Sailors residing in barracks attend indoctrination training within 30 days of
occupancy, which includes a sexual assault prevention module.
More needs to be done!
From the DOD report on Military Sexual Assault 2014:
Of the 4.3% of women who indicated experiencing unwanted sexual
contact in the past year and who reported the matter to a military authority
or organization, 62% perceived some form of professional or social
retaliation, administrative action, and/or punishment associated with their
report (53% social retaliation, 35% adverse administrative action, 32%
professional retaliation, and 11% punishment for infraction19).
Should this be the atmosphere that our children have to serve in?
TO ALL NAVY MOMS & DADS AND SAILORS: This site is attempting to offer a central place to discuss and assist some of the most important issues of Military Service that are not often talked about....Sexual Assault, Suicide, and Drug Use among our children. As time goes on, we will try to build a group that offers referrals for help and support. Despite the Navy's efforts to make the situation better, the problems still continue. We ask those of you who can contribute knowledge and experience to please do so....as difficult as it may be to discuss it...in order to help those who are coming along in their journey. Perhaps we as parents can help to bring about change to ensure the safety of our children. The solution has to begin with a small step....PLEASE TAKE THAT STEP......Post your experiences, successes, and failures within the system so that we can help to bring an end to this travesty.
