  • Thank you for posting your question on History Hub!

    According to the Military, graduates’ formal photos, both individual and group, were taken by private local commercial photographers and offered for sale at the time taken. Unfortunately those items never became part of official military records nor were they retained by the commercial photographers responsible for shooting the photos. The Still Picture Branch has many candid photos of U.S. Military personnel but in most of them, there is no identification of the people shown. Please note that, unfortunately, the Still Picture Branch does not house any military yearbooks. 

    The series most related to your request is 127-PX: Indexes to Photographs of Marine Corps and Noted Civilian Personalities, 1927–1981, which is a name index organized by last name. We conducted a search for Bruce Gilbert Cleveland, however, we unfortunately were unable to locate any images.

    If you have not done so already, you can request their Official Military Personnel File (OMPF). It is possible that a photograph could be attached to the OMPF. For more information about how to request personnel records from the National Archives' National Personnel Record Center (NPRC), please visit our website here: https://www.archives.gov/veterans.
    If you are searching for any other individuals, please email us at StillPix@nara.gov and include in your request: 1) the full name of the individual you are searching for; 2) their branch of the US military; and 3) approximate dates of service.

    We invite you to continue the conversation with community members on History Hub, but should you have follow up questions for the staff at Archives II, please email us at stillpix@nara.gov so that we can assist you further.

    We hope this assists you with your research!
