Graduation Photos

How to order photos of your recruit.

The Navy Exchange takes professional individual pictures of the recruits in their dress uniform during training.  They also take pictures of the entire division.  The recruit has the option of purchasing these pictures.  About 95% of all recruits purchase package “A” (see attached form).

  • Recruits orders are available after graduation (not mailed)
  • Your order is delivered directly to you (See form)
  • Family members aren’t able to order until graduation day
  • Check with your recruit before ordering if possible

Orders from family members, loved ones, friends or other acquaintances will not be accepted until after graduation to reduce the possibility of refund processing.  The Navy Exchange recommends discussing the purchase with the recruit / new sailor before an order is submitted.

The Navy Exchange handles orders only on-site or email transactions.  They accept all major credit cards.  If you place your order within the first five days following the new Sailors graduation date, you will receive a “Keel”.  The “Keel” for the Training Group is only available during this period.  The pictures will arrive 5-7 weeks after PIR / Graduation and the “Keel” 8-10 weeks after PIR / Graduation.

The DVD of the graduation ceremony is not included in these packages.  It must be ordered separately.   Allow 5-6 weeks after graduation for the arrival of the DVD.
