My wife and I would like to purchase our SR's photos for him and we are wondering if this is something we can do directly through the NEX photo lab?
I found a form that I can fill out and mail into them that way my SR doesn't have to spend his money.
Thanks in advance.
You should be able to purchase his pictures no problem. There should also be a phone number you can call and get it done sooner.
Is there a website we can order photos from? We've misplaced the order form.
Q. Can I obtain a DVD of the RTC graduation?
A. The Navy Exchange Photographic Services at Recruit Training Command, Great Lakes offers each graduating recruit the opportunity to purchase division and individual photographs, a division Cruise Book, which highlights the Recruits’ Boot Camp experiences from Night of Arrival to Graduation Day and a DVD of the Recruit Pass-In-Review Ceremony.
Photographs and cruise books may be purchased only by the recruit prior to their graduation from boot camp; however, if your recruit did not order a DVD of PIR, the Navy Exchange Photographic Services Office will accept orders on the day of graduation.
From another website-
The Photo Lab keeps photos for one year in case the Sailor or the family wants to order or reorder photos. Division photos are kept for ten years.
You can contact the Photo Lab at Great Lakes at 847-578-6205, but do not call them until after PIR. While your recruit is at RTC, contact him/her to see if s/he ordered pictures and let him/her know what you would like him/her to order.
