no it's not but believe it or not many N4M's use their emal address as their profile name!

Welcome to N4M’s. This site is full of information, support and encouragement. My son graduated boot camp Jan 29, 2010 and is now stationed in Sicily Italy as an IT.

If your profile or profile name contains last name (even if it is different from your rct/sailor)your rct/sailors first name or your e -mail address, I recommend that you change it for the safety of your sailor. Remember, this is a public site and anyone can read comments posted here.

Be wary of who you friend…before you accept a friend go to their page and see how active they are, the comments left, groups they’ve joined. If they have a lot of friends but no groups, no comments, click ignore and DO NOT FRIEND THEM…it is likely they are spammers, e-mail address harvesting

If you are a DEPer:
Please join the group , (just point and click on the http address) there you will find new N4M’S as well as more seasoned N4M’s to guide you along.

Join this group read some of the discussions for good info

There is a group for each month rcts leave "Leavin for Boot Camp in (month they leave)" search groups and join this will have info as well as connect you with other N4M's whose rcts leave that month.

Once you get your PIR (Pass In Review=graduation)date…search groups and join the PIR group..if it hasn’t been formed yet YOU may need to form it.

Go to YouTube and search Navy Racks, boot camp, graduaton, Battlestations 21 (CNN does it)

Explore this site as well…Forums, Groups and Videos and check out the “Main” tab…lots of good info
