 Hello all. My son had fire watch the day his paltoon had there Dress Blue pictures taken, so he had to have them made up. He told us they would be mailed to him at home. Well boot leave and RA are over and still his pictures have not arrived in the mail. He has left and I was wondering is there a number I could call to check up on them or should I give it more time. He graduated 9/9 from Pi.


Any help in this matter would be appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Here is the link to our recruit photo/video page. Just below the top of the page is a selection: Parris Island Photos. The second paragraph lists the telephone number for the Recruit Photo office. Hope this helps.

Our son had a problem with his photo and they mailed it to us.  He graduated on 8/26 and the photos arrived last week.  They're probably in the system, it just takes a little while.  Hope this helps.  Good luck!


Thank you iansdad and Tim & Leslie for your responses. I guess I will give it a little longer before I call but I am going to check out the link and write the numbers down in case I do need to call. Thank you all again for your help. 
The same thing happened to our daughter. We received them the day before she left for MCT and she was home for 22 days (with RA), so you should be getting them any day now.

--------------> Hey worries. I literally just got mine (our pics) lol yesterday and my son graduated on 9/9 as well. Hang in there, they'll be there soon.

Keeping my fingers crossed. I can not wait to see him in the uniform.
So son graduates on the 7th of Oct.  If he got in on the main photo shoot day ...will he have the pics to bring along home?

If they had their photos taken on the main photo day then they will receive them in time to hand them to you on Family Day.

I can't wait to see my son in his dress blues.  I thought he was the most handsome young man in the world in his ROTC dress uniform....can't wait to see him in that Marine uniform!
