I can't find my basic training photo anywhere. I'm afraid it got tossed out when cleaning out storage.
Being veterans day, my kids are asking for it. Does anyone know how to obtain a new one? Surely they have to be around somewhere.

I guess the first place to start would be to contact the base where you did basic and go from there. Maybe it is just me, but I doubt they are able to furnish you with another one. Hopefully I am wrong.

Last time I looked at my photo from almost 25 years ago, I didn't know who that young snot nosed kid was. :rofl:

Wouldn't any basic training photo do? After the haircut, weeks of PE, lousy food, and being yelled at 24/7 we all looked the same didn't we?

I'd say start hitting the plethora of Vet sites out there on the web. I know I've run across a few at some point searching for stuff for my grandfather and they had specific threads with guys uploading all their class graduation photo's etc...

edit:
Also found some info at the San Diego site here here:
USMC - MCRD/WRR San Diego - Frequently Asked Questions
Don't know if it applies since I don't know what branch you are...

Q: Where can I get a copy of my recruit training series book or individual/platoon graduation photo?
A: Recruit series book, platoon and individual photos are available at the Yearbook Office. Yearbooks and photos are kept for two years. They can be reached at (619) 296-3840. Yearbooks and photos older than two years can be purchased at the Museum Historical Society. The Museum Historical Society has an archive of old recruit platoon graduation photos dating back to the 1930’s and also offers some recruit yearbooks for sale. Yearbooks from the 1980's and 1990's are available in limited quantities. Platoon graduation photos and yearbooks may be purchased through the Society at (619) 524-4426.

If you have your year + class/platoon # I'm sure you can get a copy. Contact the depot you graduated out of for the POC of the old guy doing the graduation pics.
