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:
OFFICER, FIRST M.
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:
- 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:
