Officers: Is Your Photo on File? 

From Navy Personnel Command Public Affairs Office

Officers are being reminded that they are still required to have a full-length photon in their military records.

NAVADMIN 103/07 released in April 2007 reinstituted the requirement for officers to submit photographs for their permanent service records.

“While there may be limited oppor¬tunities for officers to have a photo taken professionally, there is a simple way to accomplish this requirement using materials and equipment avail¬able (a white board, a digital camera, and a plain wall),” said. Capt. Leo Falardeau, Navy Personnel Command (NPC) assistant commander for Career Progression.

  • Write the required information on a piece of paper, poster board or white board in 2” letters (can be hand-written). For example:

10 OCT 10

  • Take the white board, poster or paper along with a digital camera and a shipmate into the passageway.
  • Stand up against the bulkhead (left shoulder forward), while your ship¬mate takes your full-length photo.
  • The requirements for the photo¬graph (per MILPERSMAN 1070-180) include:
    - Color
    - Display a full-length, three-quarter view of the member, left shoulder forward
    - Use a plain, flat background to provide sufficient contrast to high¬light details of the uniform
    - Be 4 inches in width and 6 inches in height
  • Save the picture to your hard drive, then copy and paste it into the sub¬mission form (link below). Type in your info, then print the form with your picture in it and sign. 
  • Mail the completed, signed form to:
